How We Help Veterans With Social Security Disability Claims

We help veterans by creating a vocational assessment report that evaluates and reports impairments that hinder their ability to perform substantial gainful employment.  Clifford Vocational Services’ staff has been approved to serve as Vocational Experts during hearings and appeals with the Social Security Administration.  Our years of experience with the Social Security process gives us an in-depth knowledge of what evidence needs to be present in a report for your Request for Reconsideration or your hearing with an administrative law judge.

For over ten years, we have worked on and prepared hundreds of vocational assessment reports for claimants who are seeking benefits or appealing decisions.  With our extensive knowledge of the Social Security Administration rules, processes, and procedures, we can provide you with an evaluation report that accurately shows your ability to perform substantial gainful work.

Our vocational assessment includes:

  • a review of your records
  • work and transferable skills analysis using Social Security approved resources
  • vocational diagnostic interview
  • moreover, testing (if necessary)

We after a review of the records, education, age, work experience, skills analysis, interview, and any needed testing we will produce a vocational assessment report.  Our report will focus on the veteran’s ability to obtain and maintain substantial gainful work activity.

Veterans What is a sedentary work mean

Denied Social Security Disability?

So you have been denied Social Security Disability and they have told you that although you are disabled you can perform alternative sedentary work. Many times the Social Security Administration will deny you your disability benefits based on your physical capacity to function. They may say that although you are disabled from your regular occupation you possess the physical capacity to function in a sedentary alternative occupation and you are denied benefits.
