Millions of Americans are affected daily by their knee pain.

Qualifying For Social Security Disability For Knee Disabilities

The cause of the knee disabilities is generally not taken into consideration when evaluating whether your condition is disabling or not. The SSA uses certain criteria to determine whether a knee disability qualifies a claimant as disabled.

To qualify for SSD benefits for your knee condition, the condition must impair your ability to walk. The Social Security Administration defines a disabling knee condition as one that causes a functional loss resulting in the inability to ambulate effectively. Your ability to ambulate may be evaluated based on your ability to walk or perform fine or gross movements for a sustained period. 

Proving knee disabilities can sometimes be difficult, medical records can help you to provide evidence of a seriously disabling knee condition. These records may include, surgical reports, neurological testing, and pain management treatments.

Ineffective ambulations that may qualify as a knee disability include:

  • Walking without an assistive device
  • Maintaining a reasonable walking pace over a typical distance during regular daily activity
  • The ability to travel without companion assistance
  • The use of standard public transportation
  • The ability to walk a block on a rough or uneven surface at a reasonable pace
  • The ability to climb a few steps without the use of a handrail

Knee disabilities that may qualify someone for disability benefits can include:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic joint pain
  • Dysfunction of a knee joint
  • Amputation at the knee
  • The need for an assistive device
  • Inability to bear weight on the knee
