People will frequently ask us why the Administration denying their claim if one of their treating has said that they are disabled. The reality is, the concept of disability really is a term of art. It really is measured by listings the Administration has, and applicable regulations and case law.
So just because your doctor thinks your disabled, you may not be disabled. One great example is this: If you can no longer do the job doing today, there may be a simpler job that you are able to do. If you can do that job, then you may not be deemed disabled.
