A Lowell Social Security disability law firm can explain the two general vocational issues that come up in a Social Security disability case. Understanding these two issues can provide insight on whether your claim will be successful.
The first vocational issue that comes up at a disability hearing is the physical and mental demands of your past relevant work as you performed it. A Lowell Social Security disability law firm can tell you that your statements regarding your past are typically sufficient to determining the skill level, exertional demands and nonexertional demands of such work.
A vocational expert may also be consulted to describe your past relevant work. The vocational expert can describe the physical and mental demands of your specific past work or the requirements of the job as it is performed in the national economy. You will want to ask your Lowell Social Security disability law firm whether your case requires a vocational expert.
A Lowell Social Security disability lawyer can explain to you that the Social Security Administration may also be interested in whether you can perform any jobs in the national economy if you are unable to perform any of your past jobs, but your past jobs required excessive functional demands and job duties.
Generally, you may be found not disabled if you can perform a job that is ordinarily required throughout the national economy.
