Can the claimant meet the demands of his past work?

The Regulations provide that a vocational expert may offer expert opinions in response to hypothetical questions about whether a person with the physical and mental limitations of the claimant’s medical impairment can meet the demands of the claimant’s previous work, either as the claimant performed it or as it’s performed in the national economy.  If your client can still perform his previous job, he is not entitled to disability benefits.
