One year ago, I posted a short article regarding combination of impairments. It is worth revisiting, as a reminder that Social Security must consider all your impairments when deciding whether or not you are disabled. Here is an excerpt:
Social Security must consider the combination of your impairments when considering your eligibility for benefits. Even non-severe impairments must be considered in combination with your severe impairments. See 20 C.F.R. 404.1523.
This can be very important. Sometimes a seemingly minor impairment can rule out your past relevant work, and move your claim past step 4 of the sequential evaluation process. …
Remember, your RFC must include all your impairments, even non-severe ones.
