Neuropsychological reports for disability claimants should be written with reference to definitions of disability. The exclusive use of age-corrected scaled scores on the Wechsler scales places the older claimant in an unfairly favorable light. IQ scores should be reported when actual or estimated IQ loss is greater than 14 points because the Social Security Administration definitions of disability include this finding as a criterion.
