Disability Evaluation Under Social Security

Disability Evaluation Under Social Security,(also known as the Blue Book), has been specially prepared to provide clients and other concerned professionals with an understanding of the disability programs administered by the Social Security Administration. It explains how each program works, and the kinds of information a health professional can furnish to help ensure sound and prompt decisions on disability claims.

The Adult and Childhood Listings of Impairments are included in this publication. These listings are just part of how we decide if someone is disabled. We also consider past work experience, severity of medical conditions, age, education, and work skills.
