I didn't have a Functional Capacity Test but did have to fill out a functional capacity form. Actually my doctor had to fill it out. I believe that the form is the reason I was approved for SSDI. If indeed it is a doctor who will be filling this out for you ask to be present to help him understand your daily life. There were many things like how many pounds I could lift and carry. I don't remember the other specifics as it has been almost 4 years since I did that.

Have they given you an appointment for this? I have no idea what the difference is between a "test" and the form that was filled out for me. There are never charges for any tests/exams that Social Security sends you for.

Let us know what happens.

Take care,
