How severe does my condition have to be to receive disability?

Posted on February 20, 2016 by Disability Help Group

A: Your medical condition must be established by a trained physician and cause “marked” and “severe” functional limitations. This is best accomplished by having your treating physician complete a Residual Functional Capacity Questionaire. 

Most importantly, your impairment must meet or equal a Social Security “Listing” or prevent you from sustaining “substantial gainful activity”.
