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 third step of the evaluation process, in this blog we will explain step four.

At step four, the Social Security Administration looks to determine whether the claimant's residual functional capacity-what you are able to do on a consistent manner functionally. At this step the Administration considers all of your impairments, and once their initial determination has been made, Social Security looks to see if your current functional limitations would prohibit you from performing the relevant work you have performed in the last 15 years. If you current limitations prohibit you from performing these past jobs, the Administration will then move to the final step.
