Sedentary Work Activity

On Behalf of Christian Ayers
  |     |  

Under Social Security Ruling 96-9p in order to perform a full range of sedentary work activity, an individual must be able to walk and stand for a total of more than 2 hours out of 8 hour work day, stoop on an occasional basis and lift 10 pounds. The ability to do this on a sustained basis 8 hours a day, 40 hours per week in almost every case warrants a finding of disability. Obtaining this kind of assessment from treating physicians is one of the roles of an experienced social security disability attorney.
