Are you able to work a simple, entry-level, low stress job, and could you perform the tasks of such a job 8 hours a day, 5 days per week? If not, you may qualify for disability benefits under Social Security's rules.
Social Security defines disability as the inability to perform work or work-like activities. Because SSA's focus is on your capacity to work, it stands to reason that you should submit evidence to SSA about how your medical or mental health condition limits you from working.
In this video, I explain how I use a functional capacity completed by your doctor to translate your medical records into the specific work limitations desired by Social Security decision makers.

What will the judge ask you? What is the best way to respond?
