disabled from earning a livelihood
Physically incapacitated. Also where a man is so inattentive or forgetful as a result of mental disorder that he cannot be trusted to carry on even simple forms of work, he is as truly disabled from earning a livelihood as one who must refrain from work on account of the condition of his vital organs. United States v Taylor (CA4 NC) 110 F2d 132.
