Instructions and Help about Why 8850 Form Disability

Divide this text into sentences and correct mistakes: Music, hi there, this is Jonathan Ginsberg. I'm a social security disability attorney and today I'd like to talk to you about a mistake I see when I look at people's disability forms. One mistake is not knowing what you have to prove in order to win disability. Realize that Social Security defines disability in terms of your capacity to do a regular full-time type of job. It's any job, not just your past work, it's anything at all. So, literally that means, could you do a job reliably eight hours a day, five days a week? Some examples are putting ink pens in a wrapping, inspecting textiles, being a cashier, or a ticket taker at a movie theater. Something really simple, easy, brainless. You simply have to be there to do the job. So, one of the things I run into is people saying, "Well, I can't do my past work. That's all I ever knew. I'm a truck driver, that's the only thing I know. So I'm disabled because I can't be a truck driver anymore." No, even if you're a truck driver, there are unskilled jobs out there. There are packing jobs, ticket-taking jobs, surveillance system monitor jobs, even if you've never done them before. By law, if it's unskilled, you can walk off the street and do it. And you're not disabled if you can do one of those simple entry-level warm body types of jobs. So, you've got to realize what we have to prove, and that is you cannot do anything at all. The second thing is that it doesn't matter that there are no jobs in your neighborhood or that you don't have transportation to a job. It's if a job was available, could you do it?...
