Reasonable Accommodation Procedures

Section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, prohibits employment discrimination against individuals with disabilities in the federal sector and requires federal agencies to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified employees or employment applicants with disabilities, unless doing so would cause undue hardship.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is dedicated to improving the employment, retention, and advancement of qualified persons with disabilities by providing reasonable accommodation information and resources.

In addition, as required by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, SSA has established a written policy to assist agency employees and managers with processing requests for reasonable accommodation. SSA's policy contains a comprehensive explanation of reasonable accommodation procedures for submitting or responding to reasonable accommodation requests. The policy can be found at S1630_1 - Reasonable Accommodation Program
