This eGuide, which is adapted from David F. Traver’s Social Security Disability Advocate’s Handbook, offers tried and true techniques for attacking a Social Security vocational expert’s testimony.
In this eGuide, you will find helpful advice regarding:
- Techniques on attacking the VE’s testimony (and not the VE himself), and an insight into common hypothetical questions that ALJs ask VEs.
- How VEs testify before the Social Security Administration (SSA) regarding “specific jobs” and “numbers of jobs,” as well as tips for questioning the VE’s methodology in arriving at those numbers.
- Sample cross-examination questions and letters.
- Practical illustrations of several multilayered approaches to attacking the VE’s testimony.
