A series of recent posts here on the blog have taken a closer look at transferability of acquired job skills.
Transferability of skills is an issue when all four of the following are true:
1. Transferability is material to the determination;
2. past relevant work has been determined to be skilled or semiskilled;
3. The individual’s residual functional capacity prevent the performance of past relevant work; and
4. The claimant does not have a mental impairment that prevents him or her from doing skilled and semiskilled work.
