In order to determine if you qualify for a medical-vocational allowance, the Social Security Administration will first evaluate you to decide if have some capacity to work. Now if your evaluation states you have functional limitations caused by your Lymphedema conditions, for example, cannot walk for more than one hour at a time.
If your lymphedema is in your legs, and your evaluation maybe restricts you from walking, kneeling, standing or sitting for long periods of time or stay in one position for long periods of time. Also, if you have Lymphedema in your arms, the evaluation may limit you from working that involves grasping, typing, pushing, or anything that requires fine movements in your hands or arms.
Then Social Security Administration will review your past job duty requirements to determine if you could still do the job with your limitations. Now you are unable to do your past job then the Social Security Administration will try to find you other jobs that you can work along with your limitations will either transfer prior job skills or learn new job skills to do unless you are over certain age, then the SSA will not expect you to learn a new job skill. However, if the Social Security Administration make a decision you are so limited with your impairment that will cause you unable to perform work, you will determine eligible for your disability benefits based on a medical-vocational allowance.
