If an applicant is not eligible for such Social Security Administration status, the applicant may provide a letter stating they are ineligible for such status; and two physician certifications, from unrelated physicians, attesting to the applicant’s total and permanent disability which renders the applicant unable to engage in any substantial gainful occupation which will continue for life. A certificate from the organization that employed the first responder at the time the injury or injuries occurred.
