In order to be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits in Alabama, you must meet the Social Security Administration's definition of being disabled. In making this determination, the Social Security Administration follows a five step sequential evaluation process in order; if the Administration determines that you are not disabled at the end of the first step, their evaluation will continue to the next step of the evaluation process until it has been determined that you are either disabled or not. In our last blog we discussed the second step of the evaluation process, in this blog we will explain step three.

At step three, the Social Security Administration looks to determine whether the claimant's impairment(s) meets or equals one of the definitions of a disabling condition found in the listings in the Code of Federal Regulations. These are lists of impairments considered to be severe enough to prevent an individual from working in a full time sustained capacity. If you match the requirements of a listing impairment, you will automatically quality for Social Security Disability benefits. If the Administration does not find that you meet or equal any of their listings, they move to the next step.
