How to File Form SSA-3369 in Detroit
When health problems make it impossible for you to work, monthly checks from Social Security disability could help you survive. And one of the most important parts of winning benefits is explaining your work history.
You do that on Form SSA-3369, the Work History Report. The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires this form as part of your application for benefits.
SSA-3369 asks for job titles and dates you worked in past jobs, going back 15 years from the time your health problems stopped you from working.
The Work History Report also asks for details about each job you list. Those details include the physical requirements of each job, such as how much weight you were required to lift and how often you had to stand, push, pull, walk or stoop (among other physical activities).
You don’t have to spend a lot of time wrestling with this form yourself. A Levine Benjamin Law Firm attorney can fill it out for you.

How Important Is Form SSA-3369?
Along with Form SSA-3368, Form SSA-3369 is very important to your Social Security disability claim. These two forms are the core of your application.
Form SSA-3369 helps the SSA in making the decision that is central to you winning benefits: how your medical conditions affect your ability to work.
The SSA uses the information on the types of work you’ve performed in the past and the job skills and experiences you’ve gained to determine the types of physical and mental activities required by your past jobs.
That’s how they confirm that you can’t work in your most recent job, or adjust to other work because of your health problems.

How Do I Fill Out Form SSA-3369?
When filling out Form SSA-3369, make sure you answer all of the questions and leave nothing blank.
If certain areas on the form don’t apply to you, just answer by writing “I don’t know” or “Not applicable.”
It’s always better to put down some kind of answer—leaving it blank leaves the SSA with more questions. Answering all questions helps speed up your application.
When the form asks for detailed explanations, make sure to provide as much information as possible. Write in your descriptions anywhere you’re asked. You can give a detailed answer in the “remarks” sections toward the end of the form.
