When an individual files an application for Social Security Disability benefits, a number of factors are taken into account when the SSA decides whether to approve or deny the Social Security Disability applicant’s claim. One of the factors that are taken into consideration is the disability applicant’s work history.
When you provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) with a detailed work history, you are providing them with a record of the types of work you have performed in the past. This comes into play because it allows the SSA to see what types of work you may be skilled in. For example, if you were working as a construction worker and are now disabled and can no longer perform construction work, but at one time you were working as a receptionist, you may be able to return to your receptionist occupation.
When submitting an application for Social Security Disability benefits, you provide the SSA with an account of your work history by filling out Form 3369. When you fill out form 3369 make sure you provide an account of all of your past work experience so the SSA can take this information into account when assessing your claim for Social Security Disability benefits.
If you are working with a Social Security Disability attorney, the attorney you are working with will be able to obtain this form for you and will help you fill the form out properly. If you are not working with an attorney, you can obtain Form 3369 from the SSA’s website or you may pick up Form 3369 at your local Social Security office.
