Default SSDI Question

Just do this, do that to get thru the day and the heavy seasonal busy time.

How would that effect the alj decision if they say, oh you have supervisory experience and you can be a manager, etc...

Hubby doesn't want to take my suggestion that we should get a letter from his boss showing his job description and stating he was not a supervisor. We have an atty and I want to tell atty about his, hus doesn't think we need to mention it, ugggh.

Have alj hearing in a few months and want to make sure this is addressed incase it comes up...

Anyone out there with supervisor background, but got approved?
I just applied for SSDI and I am an RN. My feeling is that if your disability is severe enough, the supervisory experience should not play into the decision. Best of luck to you!

If the disability is severe "enough" than work history and education can be moot. If a person is legally blind, for example, they will be approved.

The best way to ensure approval is to provide the overwhelming medical evidence that SS requires--not just the evidence we think logically proves we're as disabled as we say we are.
