Why am I being asked to see SSA''s Doctors after they have 3 years and 2-3 inches of Doctors and Hospital records. Is this a red flag?

I applied for permanent disability and I sent in all the required Docs. Why are they asking that I see their own Doctors.

It is not necessarily a red flag.  It may be that they want something more current or non-biased.  Either way, don't assume their doctor has read all of your records before you meet.  Keep track of the time that you are with the doctor (often 15 minutes or so), and have an observer with you to verify what was or wasn't done, if allowed.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
