What are the physical and mental demands of the claimant’s former job?

February 12, 2013

What are the physical and mental demands of the claimant’s former job as generally required by employers throughout the national economy?

This issue arises when a claimant is unable to do any past job as the claimant performed it, but a past job involved functional demands and duties significantly in excess of those generally required for the job by other employers. The claimant will be found not disabled if he or she retains the capacity to perform the job as ordinarily required by employers in the national economy. See SSR 82-61.
