Recognized Other Ways to Getting Approved for SSDI or SSI

There are other ways to win your claim even if you are unable to get approved under a blue book listing. Below are some examples:

The Grids: Are a series of tables that helps Social Security to find out if an applicant is disabled or not disabled is determine by an applicant’s education, the skill level of their work history, person’s physical residual functional capacity, and age. The only time when Social Security used the grids is when an applicant is unable to do their past work, however, it is useful for getting older claimants approved for their disability benefits.

The combination of Impairments: Many claimants have more than one disability that prevents them from working. If this applies to you, then the Social Security Administration will consider the combined effects to all of your medical conditions on your ability to work or not. The Social Security Administration will review your RFC report in your file to determine if you can still work.

The combination of non-exertional and exertional limitations: An exertional limitation is an affects your ability to do the physical job requirements like carrying, lifting, standing, and sitting. Non-exertional limitations have an affect your ability to do mental and emotional requirements of a job by getting along with your boss, co-workers, and following directions. If your medical condition has both non-exertional and exertional impairments, then Social Security Administration will combine both effects on your ability to work a job. The more disability limitations a claimant has, it is most likely they will get approved.

Please keep this in mind provide Social Security Administration with as much relevant medical evidence documents as possible….
