At the Social Security hearing, you will be present, your attorney, if you have one, will be present. There will be a vocational expert present. Sometimes there will be a physician present. Either he’ll be physically present or he’ll be available by phone. Of course we’ll have the judge there and the clerk. At the hearing you will testify. You will tell the judge about your education, about your work experience, about your medical or mental condition, and how it prevents you from functioning in a real-world job situation.
The judge will ask you some questions. The attorney will supplement it. The vocational expert will testify based on a hypothetical question as to whether or not someone with your problems, your education, your work history, can find a job within the national economy. The doctor will testify as to whether or not you have an impairment that is severe enough that it prevents you from working under Social Security definitions.
