Reasonable Accommodations

Project Director

SSA should factor in the use of adaptive or accessible technology. Also, if such technology is not accessible, they should factor in the employers efforts to "work around" such limitations. For example, if a worker cannot access some software or device that is needed for part of the job, the time that the employer (supervisor or coworker) spends helping the worker with the disability because of the limited accessibility should be excluded from the income that is counted. This can be calculated similarly to how Special Conditions are calculated: time spent x employee's pay rate = excluded income.
