The biggest question for people under 50 years of age is whether you can do any kind of work.

The lowest level of work, according to Social Security, is sedentary work.

This means that if you can perform a sit down job, then you are not disabled.

This standard, as you can see, is strict.

That is why it is difficult for people under 50 years of age to win their disability case.

The definition for a sit down job is sitting 6 out of 8 hours, standing and walking 2 hours out of 8 hours, and lifting 10 pounds.

Most sedentary work requires frequent use of the hands for handling and reaching.

The medical records will have to address why you are not able to work a minimal job.
