Do not be confused when the Vocational Expert testifies about jobs you could potentially perform.

Social Security does not care if you can really find such a job.

Social Security only cares about whether you could actually do the job.

Social Security does not care if the job only pays minimum wage.

Their rules only require that you be able to perform a job; the amount the job pays does not make a difference to Social Security.

Social Security will not find a job for you.

Your ability to perform work tasks are what is key. Such as concentrating, lifting, standing, walking, sitting and using your hands.
