Vocational

At your disability hearing, the judge may request the testimony of a vocational expert (VE). Your Charlotte SSD attorney will explain to you the role a VE will play at your hearing and the types of question the judge may ask of him.

Questions About Your Past Relevant Work

While a VE is not needed to answer questions regarding the physical and mental requirements of the past relevant work you have performed, he will likely be asked to do so if he is present at your hearing. Your Charlotte SSD lawyer can explain the regulations that govern VE testimony as to your past relevant work. Generally, a VE can offer his opinion based on his own knowledge to supplement the description you have given of your past relevant work.

Your Past Relevant Work as Performed in the National Economy

Your Charlotte SSD attorney will explain that, if you performed your past relevant work in excess of what is expected of that position in the national economy, you may be considered still able to work. You will only be found disabled if you are unable to perform the job as it would ordinarily be done.
