You likely have been waiting a long time for your disability hearing date and realize the importance of it; this is your best opportunity to be approved for the benefits that have heretofore been denied you. Consequently, it is essential to be prepared for the type of questions the administrative law judge will ask.

WORK HISTORY

The focus will be on your last job and all the significant jobs you were employed at during the previous 15 years. The mechanics of each job will be analyzed with specific emphasis on:

  • The amount of weight you were required to lift
  • The time spent sitting, standing, and walking
  • The difficulties you had performing any of these specific requirements of any job but primarily those of your last job
  • Why you left each job and, again, primarily, why you left your last job

JOB SKILLS

The judge will need to know the nature of you job skills; skilled, semi-skilled or otherwise. Although it is understandable to embellish one's abilities under certain circumstances, your Greensboro Social Security disability lawyer understands the importance of providing the judge with an accurate representation of the facts.

EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Part of your education is how long it took for you to gain the job skills needed to perform the jobs you had in the relevant 15 year period. For instance, how long would it take the average person to learn how to do what you did? Other information you should be prepared to provide includes:

  • Formal education, including highest grade completed and any degrees awarded
  • Military training
  • Vocational training
  • On-the-job training
