Job titles

I found another thread interesting with job titles that SSA says certain individuals can do. Is there another thread already with this info in it?(please delete this if the topic is a repeat) Sorry if I missed it but I thought this would be an interesting topic...

so how about it? What job titles have you been told would be an option for you?

Re: Job titles

The Voc person is getting titles from the DOT, Dictionary of Occupational Titles. The Voc person takes your limitations and then searches for a job for which you would qualify and be able to do the work based on how it is explained in the DOT.

The DOT is somewhat vague though. For example, I was an Account Manager in insurance and this is viewed as sedentary and SS doesn't understand why I can't do it, but Account Managers range from sedentary in -office to positions like mine where I was flying all over Arizona, New Mexico, south Texas and south Nevada, sometimes all in the same week! So the titles are very generic

Re: Job titles

In my very first denial, on my first case, I was told I could be a DJ.

Re: Job titles

I've done office work the majority of my career but that means different things in different companies.

Real Estate I was the office manager/secretary; which was very different than being office manager/secretary of the swimming pool and repair business but they tried to lump both jobs as nothing more than answering the phones.

RE was completely different than the pool business; for instance I did inventory for RE - check for paper, pens, calendars, folders etc, I did that also for the pool business but I also had to drive to a hot stuffy warehouse and spend a day there going through chemicals and parts. I would pull 100lb tab buckets and salt bags or heavy motor parts for customers; no way are the 2 comparable

now I'm lucky to pick up my coffee cup if it's too full or get dressed alone...
