Determining Residual Functional Capacity
Posted in: Benefits on August 16th, 2011

residual functioning capacityIt takes nearly two years to get through the business of applying for either Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income.  Many people who are either grappling with this process or considering applying for benefits are wondering how on earth the process could take as long as it does.  After all, those who are truly disabled and unable to work often suffer during the long process required to receive disability benefits.

In truth, the longest part of the process is determining what the Social Security Administration calls Residual Functional Capacity, or what the applicant’s ability to work is after sustaining the disability.  How does the Social Security Administration define this term, and what can be done to help streamline the disability application process?

The Nitty Gritty

The government is a bureaucracy, and thus is full of words.  If you really want to get a leg up on the application process for Social Security Disability Insurance in particular, you need to get familiar with the words that the government uses to either approve or deny your claim.

A Residual Functional Capacity is determined through Title 20 of the Code of Federal Regulations, part 404, section 1545.  If you’re planning on going through the process, you can read the specifications of  Residual Functional Capacity on the Social Security Administration’s website. This is the official document that is used to determine Social Security Disability Insurance, so be sure to sit down and read it before you attempt the claims process.  Understanding how the government works is key to getting your benefits in as timely a manner as possible!
