When it comes to your disability hearing, one of the more important questions you will be asked concerns your work history. Whether you qualify for disability will depend largely on your job history in the last 15 years and whether you can still perform those jobs. Your St. Charles social security disability attorney will walk you through the questions you can expect.
The judge at your hearing will likely ask you how much lifting and pulling was involved at any of your past jobs, as well as how much time during the workday was spent sitting or standing. The judge needs to get a sense of how physically strenuous your past jobs were. If you had difficulty at any of these jobs because of your health, make sure to include that in your testimony.
If these difficulties led to you having to leave a job, that is a very important detail that your St. Charles social security disability attorney will want you to include.Your job skills are also a topic of testimony at the hearing, whether they were unskilled, semi-skilled or skilled. You do not need to boast about your job skills as if it were a job interview; instead focus on describing your skills accurately and discuss how they have been affected by your impairment.
If you have trouble trying to articulate why any of your prior jobs are now difficult, ask your St. Charles social security disability attorney what you can say and how you can explain it.
