Social Security Disability Claims

In certain instances a vocational expert will be present, usually by telephone, to testify at a Social Security hearing.  This expert has extensive knowledge regarding the types of jobs available in the national economy and the specific requirements for each job.

The expert will testify after the claimant gives testimony.  The purpose of the expert’s testimony is to help the Judge determine whether or not the claimant is able to perform any other jobs he or she was able to do in the last 15 years.  The expert will also help the Judge determine whether or not there are any other jobs existing in substantial numbers in the national economy that the claimant would be able to perform.

If you have questions regarding a Social Security Disability matter, we would be happy to meet with you for a free consultation.
