Return of the Listings?


I received a few Fully Favorable decisions recently where the administrative law judge found that listed impairment 12.06 A & C were met, and therefore the claimant was entitled to disability benefits at Step 3 of Social Security’s sequential evaluation.

A listed impairment is a condition that meets the description and severity that is desribed in Social Security’s regulations.

If a listing is met (or equaled…see Ruling 17-02p), then the disability claim is granted at step 3 of the sequential evaluation. No vocational evidence is necessary. It is a quick and clean way to decide a case.

For a while, it seemed like the listings fell out of favor.
