Pass the Residual Functional Capacity Test
The Residual Functional Capacity test (RFC) is one of the determining factors of acceptance or denial of Social Security Disability benefits. In some cases this one assessment makes all the difference. When you apply for disability benefits an SSA assessor completes the assessment based on the medical records you have submitted or the SSA has gathered. Although there is a section for the assessor to list deviations between medical records and what you have indicated your problems are, it is primarily based on the written documents your doctor(s) sent to the SSA.
