5-Step Disability Process

5-Steps to Disability

Social Security uses a 5-step analysis process when evaluating whether or not an individual’s medical condition will establish eligibility for disability benefits. With one exception, noted below, each step represents a “gateway” that must be passed in order to proceed.  If you have any questions about some of the terms used in this note, please visit O’Brien & Feiler’s online glossary.
