At your disability hearing, the judge will want to know about the limitations caused by your impairment. Below, your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer explains the types of questions to expect.
The judge will want to know about your ability to go between sitting and standing as well as how frequently you must stand if you have been sitting and vice versa. If you are unable to get through an entire eight-hour work day, let the judge know your limit. If you are given an opportunity to stand while working at a bench, the judge will want to know if your ability to do so is dependent upon the height of the bench. You will be asked if you alternate sitting with walking, for what reason, for how long and your ability to work the entire day doing so.
The judge will begin by asking if you have issues standing and, if so, for how long you are able to stand and what your limitations are. You should be able to describe the consequences of standing for too long.
If you have problems walking, the judge will want to know how far you can walk in a single stretch, at what speed and the total over a full work day. Be prepared to explain any devices you use to help you walk and the ramifications of walking too far. Additionally, let the judge know if you have balance issues, especially on slippery or shifting surfaces.
