Sometimes, speaking up for yourself means keeping track of a lot of different information.

You may need to collect documentation that supports your case. The more information you have, the better prepared you will be, and the easier it will be for people to help you.

You might need documents that have your medical, financial, education, or residential information on them. Put each kind of document in a different folder.
