    I'm getting ready for the Alj Hearing and have a question: If I'm asked what I did at my previous jobs for example: how long did you sit? 2 hours out of 8. How often did you stoop? Less than 1 hour out of 8, etc. Are these questions being asked because the alj is wanting to know how much you DID compared what you can do now and if so, how?

    this may not make sense; heck it doesn't make sense to me but it did when I was typing it, lol.

    Anyway, if anyone knows what I'm trying to ask, would you please try to respond?

    Thank you so much; I'm trying to understand the point of the questions and what effect will it have on the case.

    they want to know that if you aren't able to do your current or last job, if you would be able to do what you did previously?
