A Disability Lawyer in Ocala Discusses How Past Work Experience Will Impact Your Claim

  • Published: August 8, 2013

Work experience is an important part of the disability application process. Your disability lawyer in Ocala can explain more regarding how previous employment is viewed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) in relation to your claim.

A Disability Lawyer in Ocala Discusses Past Relevant Work

Your disability lawyer in Ocala can explain that in order to be considered past relevant work by the SSA, the work must have completed within the past fifteen years, it must have lasted long enough for you to learn how to perform it, and it must qualify as activity that was “substantial gainful.”

A Disability Attorney in Ocala Can Help You Prepare

Your attorney knows that, for all work you did in the fifteen years before your adjudication date (or before the last date you were insured, whichever comes first), you might need to provide the following information:

  • Background information about your job.
  • Your employer’s name, as well as the name of your job.
  • Your duties at the time you were employed.
  • The dates you were employed.
  • Whether you were employed part-time or full-time.
  • If your job involved lifting or carrying objects, the weights of those objects and how often and far you were required to lift/carry them.
  • Details concerning how much sitting, standing, walking, etc. you performed in an average day.
