For limitations on when to do an RFC assessment, see DI 28015.315.
When needed, this type of RFC assessment may be either:
noted administratively in the file; or
recorded on an RFC form to take into account the beneficiary’s particular limitations
(at the assigned level of RFC).
When using a form for this purpose, include the remark: “This form shows RFC as of
the decision dated (enter date of CPD), considering all impairments present at that
time. This form shows maximum capacity consistent with that decision, but not necessarily
an independent assessment.”
