Sequential Eval Process

     Here is a flow chart / diagram illustrating the "5 Step Sequential Evaluation Process" which is used by all Administrative Law Judges in determining whether a claimant is "disabled" or "not disabled".   This is a graphic representation of the lawful application of the regulations during the decision making process.  It may seem simple after you have studied it, but... your claim can get derailed, and you could be found "not disabled" at any one of the steps unless the evidence in your claim has been properly presented & adverse contentions or findings rebutted in a convincing manner
