The questions the judge will ask a claimant at the hearing are predictable. "..Are you able to drive? Why did you stop working on that particular date? Tell me about your typical day." The claimant must show his/her disabling condition prevents him/her from being able to work. The judge looks for a complete picture of how the disabling condition affects the person - why they can't do their past work and daily living limitations. Credibility is key - the judge scrutinizes the claimant very closely during these routine questions. Lawyers can go through these questions to prepare their clients before the hearing; the importance of detailed answers can help make the picture more real.
