Sometimes Social Security Disability Judges will ask questions about your ability to do certain types of jobs.

Why do they do this?

If you are under 50 years of age and can work any type of full time job, then you are not disabled.

A person who responds to the Judge and says they think they could work a simple sit down job, will usually be denied disability benefits.

The Judge is usually testing to see how limited you really are.

Keep in mind with these type of work questions the following:

Can you really do this work 5 days a week, 8 hours day?

How will your chronic pain affect your concentration?

How will your medications limit your energy?

How will your back or legs or arms and hands hold up after a work day?
