Your Michigan Social Security disability hearing will give you the opportunity to convince the administrative law judge (ALJ) that you are disabled and deserve disability benefits. But it also gives the ALJ the opportunity to ask you questions, as well. Generally, these questions are regarding your educational background and work history. The more prepared you are to answer these questions, the better your chances for a favorable outcome. Your experienced Michigan Social Security disability lawyer can go over these questions with you in advance of the hearing. This will better prepare you for the hearing and also avoid any discomfort or anxiety during the hearing.

Work History
The ALJ will question you about all the jobs that you have had in the past 15 years. The ALJ will also want to know if you had durations during which your disability has prevented you from working. The ALJ will further want to know if you had periods in which you attempted to return to work but your disability prevented you from staying on the job for a long time. The ALJ is looking for specifics. The more details you provide, the better chance that you will win your case.

Educational Background
With regard to your educational background, the ALJ will ask you about your level of education, any additional training you may have had, and whether you have had any military training.

Your “day in court” can be very stressful and emotionally draining. You have been waiting a long time for this day. So, why leave your chance of success up to faith? It is crucial that you are well prepared for your hearing by consulting with a reputable Michigan Social Security disability attorney prior to your hearing.
