When a person applies for Social Security Disability benefits, one of the most important aspects that is examined to determine if an applicant qualifies for benefits is the claimant’s ability to return to work. The Social Security Disability Lawyers with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin say the Social Security Administration’s claims adjustors most often make this determination by looking at the claimant’s work history and past education.

Officials say information about past jobs and schooling can be key in determining Social Security Disability Eligibility because they give insight into what kinds of work a person may be able to return to. Also, depending on a person’s previous experiences and education, a person may be deemed capable of learning new trades or skills that could provide income for their families.

There are numerous questions that can be posed to a claimant regarding their eligibility for disability benefits. The Social Security Administration attempts to answer some of the most Frequently Asked Questions regarding education and work experience, but the answers are often broad and complex.
