Does the claimant have any transferable skills to a significant range of work?
The issue of transferability of work skills is complex. The issue is decisive for relatively few claimants because even if the claimant has no transferable skill, if he is under 50, there is a large number of unskilled jobs. In cases involving claimants 50 and over transferability matters. There are different standards based on age for determining whether or not skills are transferable. See Section 349. Knowing whether your client has transferable skills is important to know, especially in cases where you client is above the age of 49.
