What Does "Transferable Skills" mean in Claims for SSDI and SSI Benefits?

March 18, 2024

Transferable skills are based upon the work experience that Disabled Individuals gained throughout their years of employment. Categories of jobs and skills can be found in a government publication called the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. The job titles and skills outlined in this publication are based upon the education, training, and experience Disabled Individuals acquired while they were able to work. SSA will look at a Disabled Individual's past 15 years of employment to determine the job skill level and the possibility of skills that would transfer from the Disabled Individual's past jobs to a job that would be less demanding in nature. Eliminating the possibility of Transferable Skills is a key component to a successful claim for Disability Benefits from the Social Security Administration.
