DI 25225.010 The Interactive and Cumulative Effects of an Impairment or Multiple Impairments –
Policy (Section 416.926a(c))
When we evaluate your functioning and decide which domains may be affected by your
impairment(s), we will look first at your activities and your limitations and restrictions.
Any given activity may involve the integrated use of many abilities and skills; therefore,
any single limitation may be the result of the interactive and cumulative effects
of one or more impairments. And any given impairment may have effects in more than
one domain; therefore, we will evaluate the limitations from your impairment(s) in
any affected domain(s).
