Baltimore Social Security Law Firm Discusses Proof You Can’t Do a Sedentary Job
What Is a Sedentary Job?
A sedentary job is one that requires you to perform easy tasks, typically at a desk. At a sedentary job, you will not be required to lift more than 10 pounds of weight at a time.
In order to receive disability benefits, you will need to prove that your disability keeps you from being able to work a 40-hour work week at a sedentary job and produce quality work for the employer. You may not be able to do work a sedentary job if:
- Leg, neck, or back pain prevents you from sitting for long periods of time.
- If pain in your hands or fingers prevent you from being able to grasp objects, which may be required at a sedentary job.
- If pain in your arms or shoulders prevent you from being able to reach or handle objects required to be successful in your position.
- If painful flare-ups cause you to miss too many working days.
- If your chronic fatigue does not allow you to keep the pace necessary to handle the job.
- If you need to frequently leave your workstation to stretch or use the restroom.
