SSA logo: link to Social Security Online home605. Does SSA make disability determinations on a disability-rating schedule?

We do not make disability determinations on a rating schedule, for either adults or children. If the evidence of your impairment does not meet the threshold for a finding of disability under the Social Security Act, we will determine that you are not disabled, even if you have some work-related functional limitation(s). We do not evaluate a “percentage of disability” caused by a claimant’s impairment(s).
