It is not easy navigating the social security application process, but that is just the first step.  Next, the Social Security Administration (SSA) needs to determined that you are “disabled.”  Unfortunately, what the SSA considers disabled is not easily understood.  The SSA Defines disabled as the inability to “engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.” Social Security Administration, “Disability Evaluation Under Social Security, Part I – General Information, Definition of Disability,” as of December 1st, 2016.

In order to determine whether someone meets this definition of disabled, the SSA uses a 5-step test.

Step 1:  Are you currently working?

Step 2:  Do you have a severe impairment?

Step 3:  Do you meet any of the listed impairments?

Step 4:  Can you perform any of your past relevant work?

Step 5:  Can you perform any other kind of work?
