Hurdle 4: Past Relevant Work | Tampa Social Security Disability Attorney

Most applicants will meet the Hurdle 1, Substantial Gainful Activity, and Hurdle 2, Severe Impairment. Since most do not meet Hurdle 3, Listing of Impairments, the usual case moves to Hurdle 4, Past Relevant Work (PRW).

You must prove that you can’t do the lightest job you have done in the last 15 years. What was the easiest job you did? Can you still do that job? If so, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will find that you are not disabled. If you can do the job as it is ordinarily done, you are not disabled.

When you fill out forms as a part of your application, make sure you explain why you can’t do the lightest job you held in the last 15 years by explaining how your disability limits your ability to do that job.
