Unfortunately SSA does not have a "partial" disability program, but your State may. I'm sorry to hear your knee is not doing well.

To receive disability, by law, Social Security has a very strict definition of disability. To be found disabled:
• You must be unable to do any substantial work because of your medical condition(s); and
• Your medical condition(s) must have lasted, or be expected to last, at least 1 year, or be expected to result in your death. http://www.socialsecurity.gov/disability/disability_starter_kits_adult_factsheet.htm#disability


You may want to review http://www.socialsecurity.gov/hlp/radr/10/ent001-disb-info.htm regarding Social Security's Disability Programs, and http://www.socialsecurity.gov/disability/ and of course, SSA's website.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
