Can you get disability for arthritis of the knee?




 
When a disability examiner reviews a claim, they focus on two things: your medical evidence and your work history. In looking at the medical evidence, they are trying to determine if you have enough limitations from your condition so that you lack the ability to go back to your past work and also lack the ability to switch to some type of other work.

Osteoarthritis is considered a severe impairment. Whether or not you can be approved for disability with arthritis of the knee will depend the limitations caused by the arthritis and, as I said, whether it prevents you from being able to return to your past work and, based on your age, education, limitations, and job skills, also prevents you from being able to do other work.

Some individuals who apply with osteoarthritis will be approved for disability through the arthritis, osteoarthritis listing itself. In most cases, a person who files for SSD or SSI and lists arthritis of the knee and is then subsequently approved will receive their benefits through a medical vocational allowance, the disability determination process that asks whether or not they can go back to their old work or do some other type of work.
