Michelle Michelle December 21, 2022

DAP Basics training series is designed for new DAP attorneys, paralegals and advocates or more experienced advocates who need a refresher the basic concepts of disability law practice, covering the most important things you need to know about, both concepts and procedures, to represent your clients in disability claims.

This session focuses on residual functional capacity (RFC), which comes up particularly at Steps Four and Five of the Sequential Evaluation. RFC is the most a claimant can still do on a sustained daily bases despite their impairment related limitations. We’ll go through what RFC is and what RFC is not, including exertional and non-exertional limitations, mental limitations and assessments.
