Horn & Kelley win another Appeals Council remand
Horn & Kelley, national leaders in social security disability law, won an Appeals Council remand Aug. 13, 2013. Claimant’s alleged past relevant work was done as part of a composite job. A claimant can be found capable of performing a composite job as actually performed only when she can perform all parts of the job. The vocational expert testified the claimant’s residual functional capacity would allow for performance of one part of the job, but not the other. Because the composite job does not have a counterpart in the dictionary of Occupational Titles, it is not to be evaluated when considering the claimant’s ability to do the job as generally performed in the national economy. Claimant may not have past relevant work as defined by SSR 82-62. Call Horn & Kelley at 877-614-8861 or 888-921-5297.
