SSA is proposing to eliminate a category "inability to communicate in English" as a potential factor that would reduce a claimant's ability to be employable. This is potentially a very significant development and very concerning; it will negatively impact claimants who are unable to communicate in English since it will no longer take that into account in assessing their transferability to perform other work and instead just assume that their lack of English language skills doesn't make them any less employable which defies logic and practical real world application in this author's view.
