Disability Evaluation Under Social Security

Why this resource is helpful:

Disability Evaluation Under Social Security has been specially prepared to provide physicians and other health professionals with an understanding of the disability programs administered by the Social Security Administration. It explains how each program works, and the kinds of information a health professional can furnish to help ensure sound and prompt determinations and decisions on disability claims.

The Listing of Impairments, which includes listings for both adults and children, appear in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in appendix 1 to subpart P of part 404 . We also provide them here. The listings are just part of how we decide if someone is disabled. For adults, we also consider past work experience, severity of medical conditions, age, education, and work skills.
We no longer publish Disability Evaluation Under Social Security in hardcopy because we publish updated versions of the Listing of Impairments electronically.

Our Disability Determination Process Most Social Security disability claims are initially processed through a network of local Social Security Administration ( S S A) field offices and State agencies (usually called Disability Determination Services or D D Ss).

Subsequent appeals of unfavorable determinations may be decided in a D D S or by an administrative law judge in S S AA's Office of Hearing Operations.
