If you are applying for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA), but you don’t meet the requirements of a Blue Book listing, you can use the medical-vocational allowance just as a way to be approved for benefits.
Medical Vocational Allowance Considerations
The medical vocational allowance considers several things. First, a residual functional capacity (RFC) is a form that is used to determine your limitations and restrictions.
In addition to the RFC, Social Security will consider your age, your educational level, and work skills. The lower your educational levels, the more likely you are to be approved for disability benefits.
If you don’t have a high school education at all, then you have very limited educational skills, you will have difficulty transitioning to another job and learning new skills.
Consult With A Disability Attorney
If you are applying for disability benefits, you want to make sure all aspects of your situation are considered. You should consult with a disability attorney who will help you gather up supporting documentation and help you throughout the claims process.
Your odds of a successful claim are much better when you have a disability lawyer.
