    alone and if not the rule s reflecting the individual s maximum residual strength capabilities age education and work experience provide a framework for consideration of how much the individual s work capability is further diminished in terms of any types of jobs that would be contraindicated by the nonexertional limitations Also in these combinations of nonexertional and exertional limitations which cannot be wholly determined under the rules in this Appendix 2 full consideration must be given to all of the relevant facts in the case in accordance with the definitions and discussions of each factor in the appropriate sections of the regulations which will provide insight into the adjudicative weight to be accorded each factor 201 00 Maximum sustained work capability limited to sedentary work as a result of severe medically determinable impairment s a Most sedentary occupations fall within the skilled semi skilled professional administrative technical clerical and benchwork classifications Approximately 200 separate unskilled sedentary occupations can be identified each representing numerous jobs in the national economy Approximately 85 percent of these jobs are in the machine trades and benchwork occupational categories These jobs unskilled sedentary occupations may be performed after a short demonstration or within 30 days b These unskilled sedentary occupations are standard within the industries in which they exist While sedentary work represents a significantly restricted range of work this range in itself is not so prohibitively restricted as to negate work capability for substantial gainful activity c Vocational adjustment to sedentary work may be expected where the individual has special skills or experience relevant to sedentary work or where age and basic educational competencies provide sufficient occupational mobility to adapt to the major segment of unskilled sedentary work Inability to engage in substantial gainful activity would be indicated where an individual who is restricted to sedentary work because of a severe medically determinable impairment lacks special skills or experience relevant to sedentary work lacks educational qualifications relevant to most sedentary work e g has a limited education or less and the individual s age though not necessarily advanced is a factor which significantly limits vocational adaptability d The adversity of functional restrictions to sedentary work at advanced age 55 and over for individuals with no relevant past work or who can no longer perform vocationally relevant past work and have no transferable skills warrants a finding of disabled in the the absence of the rare situation where the individual has recently completed education which provides a basis for direct entry into skilled sedentary work Advanced age and a history of unskilled work or no work experience would ordinarily offset any vocational advantages that might accrue by reason of any remote past education whether it is more or less than limited education e The presence of acquired skills that are readily transferable to a significant range of skilled work within an individual s residual functional capacity would ordinarily warrant a finding of ability to engage in substantial gainful activity regardless of the adversity of age or whether the individual s formal education is commensurate with his or her demonstrated skill level The acquisition of work skills demonstrates the ability to perform work at the level of complexity demonstrated by the skill level attained regardless of the individual s formal educational attainments f In order to find transferability of skills to skilled sedentary work for individuals who are of advanced age 55 and over there must be very little if any vocational adjustment required in terms of tools work processes work settings or the industry g Individuals approaching advanced age age 50 54 may be significantly limited in vocational adaptability if they are restricted to sedentary work When such individuals have no past work experience or can no longer perform vocationally relevant past work and have no transferable skills a finding of disabled ordinarily obtains However recently completed education which provides for direct entry into sedentary work will preclude such a finding For this age group even a high school education or more ordinarily completed in the remote past would have little impact for effecting a vocational adjustment unless relevant work experience reflects use of such education h The term younger individual is used to denote an individual age 18 through 49 For those within this group who are age 45 49 age is a less positive factor than for those who are age 18 44 Accordingly for such individuals 1 who are restricted to sedentary work 2 who are unskilled or have no transferable skills 3 who have no relevant past work or who can no longer perform vocationally relevant past work and 4 who are either illiterate or unable to communicate in the English language a finding of disabled is warranted On the other hand age is a more positive factor for those who are under age 45 and is usually not a significant factor in limiting such an individual s ability to make a vocational adjustment even an adjustment to unskilled sedentary work and even where the individual is illiterate or unable to communicate in English However a finding of disabled is not precluded for those individuals under age 45 who do not meet all of the criteria of a specific rule and who do not have the ability to perform a full range of sedentary work The following examples are illustrative Example 1 An individual under age 45 with a high school education can no longer do past work and is restricted to unskilled sedentary jobs because of a severe medically determinable cardiovascular impairment which does not meet or equal the listings in Appendix 1 A permanent injury of the right hand limits the individual to sedentary jobs which do not require bilateral manual dexterity None of the rules in Appendix 2 are applicable to this particular set of facts because this individual cannot perform the full range of work defined as sedentary Since the inability to perform jobs requiring bilateral manual dexterity significantly compromises the only range of work for which the individual is otherwise qualified i e sedentary a finding of disabled would be appropriate Example 2 An illiterate 41 year old individual with mild mental retardation IQ of 78 is restricted to unskilled sedentary work and cannot perform vocationally relevant past work which had consisted of unskilled agricultural field work his or her particular characteristics do not specifically meet any of the rules in Appendix 2 because this individual cannot perform the full range of work defined as sedentary In light of the adverse factors which further narrow the range of sedentary work for which this individual is qualified a finding of disabled is appropriate i While illiteracy or the inability to communicate in English may significantly limit an individual s vocational scope the primary work functions in the bulk of unskilled work relate to working with things rather than with data or people and in these work functions at the unskilled level literacy or ability to communicate in English has the least significance Similarly the lack of relevant work experience would have little significance since the bulk of unskilled jobs require no qualifying work experience Thus the functional capability for a full range of sedentary work represents sufficient numbers of jobs to indicate substantial vocational scope for those individuals age 18 44 even if they are illiterate or unable to communicate in English TABLE No 1 Residual Functional Capacity Maximum Sustained Work Capability Limited to Sedentary Work as a Result of Severe Medically Determinable Impairment s Rule Age Education Previous Work

sustained work capability limited to light work as a result of severe medically determinable impairment s a The functional capacity to perform a full range of light work includes the functional capacity to perform sedentary as well as light work Approximately 1 600 separate sedentary and light unskilled occupations can be identified in eight broad occupational categories each occupation representing numerous jobs in the national economy These jobs can be performed after a short demonstration or within 30 days and do not require special skills or experience b The functional capacity to perform a wide or full range of light work represents substantial work capability compatible with making a work adjustment to substantial numbers of unskilled jobs and thus generally provides sufficient occupational mobility even for severely impaired individuals who are not of advanced age and have sufficient educational competencies for unskilled work c However for individuals of advanced age who can no longer perform vocationally relevant past work and who have a history of unskilled work experience or who have only skills that are not readily transferable to a significant range of semi skilled or skilled work that is within the individual s functional capacity or who have no work experience the limitations in vocational adaptability represented by functional restriction to light work warrant a finding of disabled Ordinarily even a high school education or more which was completed in the remote past will have little positive impact on effecting a vocational adjustment unless relevant work experience reflects use of such education d Where the same factors in paragraph c of this section regarding education and work experience are present but where age though not advanced is a factor which significantly limits vocational adaptability i e closely approaching advanced age 50 54 and an individual s vocational scope is further significantly limited by illiteracy or inability to communicate in English a finding of disabled is warranted e The presence of acquired skills that are readily transferable to a significant range of semi skilled or skilled work within an individual s residual functional capacity would ordinarily warrant a finding of not disabled regardless of the adversity of age or whether the individual s formal education is commensurate with his or her demonstrated skill level The acquisition of work skills demonstrates the ability to perform work at the level of complexity demonstrated by the skill level attained regardless of the individual s formal educational attainments f For a finding of transferability of skills to light work for individuals of advanced age who are closely approaching retirement age age 60 64 there must be very little if any vocational adjustment required in terms of tools work processes work settings or the industry g While illiteracy or the inability to communicate in English may significantly limit an individual s vocational scope the primary work functions in the bulk of unskilled work relate to working with things rather than with data or people and in these work functions at the unskilled level literacy or ability to communicate in English has the least significance Similarly the lack of relevant work experience would have little significance since the bulk of unskilled jobs require no qualifying work experience The capability for light work which includes the ability to do sedentary work represents the capability for substantial numbers of such jobs This in turn represents substantial vocational scope for younger individuals age 18 49 even if illiterate or unable to communicate in English TABLE No 2 Residual Functional Capacity Maximum Sustained Work
