Social Security Doesn't Just Look at Your "Worst Problems" in Evaluating Your Claim for Disability

Many claimants think that only their "worst problems" are considered by the Administrative Law Judge. This is not true. In a Social Security Disability claim, the Administrative Law Judge has to determine the claimant's residual functional capacity. Residual functional capacity is a fancy way of saying what is the most a person can do. This means that the Administrative Law Judge considers all of your problems before deciding what you can do.

Your medical records are probably the most important documents in a Social Security Disability claim. An Administrative Law Judge must have proof that you are disabled, and it is the claimant's burden to prove disability.
