RFC’s help determine what a Claimant is capable of doing during a normal 8 hour workday due to your physical or mental conditions and also your impairments related symptoms such as pain, difficulty concentrating or fatigue. RFC’s also determined if your medical conditions affect your ability to interact with others such as co-workers, supervisors and the general public.
At the hearing level the Administrative Law Judge will also take into high consideration the limitations placed on you by your treating physicians through the RFC. The limitations placed may prevent you from returning to your past relevant work, and can also have the vocational expert state that there is not a job that you are capable of performing due to your limitations.
We highly recommend the use of RFC’s. Many people who do not have an attorney, have no idea what an RFC is and how to use it. If you have questions about RFC’s or anything else related to Social Security Disability benefits, please do not hesitate to contact us at (877) 817-4127. The consultation is free.
