The Grids and Exertional Limitations | Hudson Social Security Disability Attorney

Exertional and Non-Exertional limitations are one of my favorite topics. Winning your Social Security Disability claim requires you to be an artist. You must paint a picture with your words about how your disability impacts your ability to function 24/7.

I ask my clients to fill out their Social Security disability paperwork by explaining in detail their day… from the time you get up till the time you go to bed. I want you to even explain the quality or lack of quality of your sleep.

Exertional abilities are sitting, standing, walking, lifting, carrying, pushing, and pulling. Think about your day 24/7 in terms of those abilities and explain from morning to night what limits you have on your exertional abilities.

The Administrative Law Judge hears “I am in pain” from everyone in the hearing room. What the Judge rarely hears is a story, in your own words, about how your disability impacts your exertional abilities so that Judge can see, in their own mind’s eye, what problems you have 24/7 in your physical functioning.
