An Ocala Social Security Disability Lawyer Explains What to Expect During Your Disability Hearing

  • Published: May 20, 2013

What Will You Be Asked by Your Ocala Social Security Disability Lawyer?

At your Social Security disability hearing, you will be questioned on a variety of topics. While not all of these questions will relate directly to your case, your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer must use this opportunity to demonstrate any challenges that you face that may qualify you for receiving disability benefits.

Your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer may ask you regarding the following:

Personal information:

  • What your name is, where you live, and what your Social Security number is
  • When you were born, how old you are now, and how old you were when you became disabled
  • Your level of education

What level of education did you complete?

  • Did you graduate high school?
  • If not, do you have a general equivalency diploma (G.E.D.)?

If English is your second language:

  • What is your native country?
  • What is your first language?
  • Where did your schooling take place?
  • On what date did you arrive in the United States?
  • If not in English, how do you converse at home?
  • In your family, who opens your letters?
  • Can you understand writing in a language other than your own?

If you are mentally impaired:

  • Did you attend exceptional student (E.S.E.) classes?
  • How was your performance?
  • Can you understand writing at an 8th grade level?

If your reading skills are limited:

  • Can you decipher a newspaper?
  • Can you compose and/or follow easy lists, notes or directions?

If you cannot read:

  • Who usually reads to you?
  • How do you complete paperwork for employment, a driver’s license, and/or Social Security?
  • Are you able to perform arithmetic tasks and/or handle money?
  • Explain any on-the-job or job-related education and how long ago you went through it.
  • Explain any armed forces schooling you underwent and how long ago
