The Social Security Hearing: Are You A Reliable Worker?

In a majority of Social Security Disability cases a crucial issue is whether or not the claimant is able to perform not only their past work, but also any other jobs available in the economy.

Proving that a claimant is unreliable could be the difference between your claim being denied or approved.

The treating physician should be asked to give a statement outlining how many days a week or month the claimant would have to miss from work as a result of their disabling conditions.

If a doctor will offer an opinion that the claimant’s attendance record would likely be poor and that he or she would be an unreliable worker, a Judge may be able to infer that there is no work available for this person.
