A Charlotte SSD Attorney on a Claimant’s Work and Educational History

The manner in which a claimant presents his or her case for disability is critical. Call Charlotte SSD attorneys Bridgman Law Offices at (704) 815-6055.

History

An important consideration in the determination of disability is the claimant's significant work history in the past 15 years. For a complete understanding of that issue and all other SSD determinations, contact a Charlotte SSD attorney.

Work History

The important details of a claimant's work history include:

  • How much time spent sitting, standing and walking;
  • How much weight did the job require the claimant to lift; and
  • Specific job skills required.

As your Charlotte SSD lawyer will explain, the judge in the disability hearing will focus specifically on the difficulties the claimant reported in performing the past job duties and the reason why the claimant left each job, particularly the last job.

Education and Skilled vs. Semi-skilled Jobs

The skill level of the claimant is important. If the judge concludes the claimant cannot perform any past relevant work, the claimant may be deemed qualified to perform other jobs available in the market place. A Charlotte SSD attorney knows that it is essential for the claimant to refrain from exaggerating his or her skill level and be as honest and straightforward as possible. Special training, military training and educational level will be considered.
