One important step in the Social Security process is completing a Work History report. Thoroughly completing the work history report can increase your changes of being awarded benefits along the initial portion of your claim. It is necessary to describe all requirements of past jobs within the last 15 years. Failing to list all duties and requirements can cause reason for Social Security to say that you can return to past relevant work.
The more jobs that you are capable of performing decrease your chances of receiving benefits.
Why You Should Get Help
It is important for individuals especially 55 and older to have assistance or someone to review the Work History report as it is also important that the individual does not have transferable skills. A person with transferable skills gives Social Security more of an open window in other jobs that person can perform. The more jobs that you are capable of performing decrease your chances of receiving benefits.
Social Security does not need to show that you can not perform a job that you like or that you would choose to do, but any job that is within your knowledge and education.
