The E section usually contains for two documents that provide this information:
- “Disability Report – Field Office”
- “Disability Report – Appeal”
These reports also tells you whether Social Security thinks there should be a later (or earlier) alleged onset date and Social Security also discussed whether work after the alleged onset day was an unsuccessful work activity or not a substantial gainful activity.
I have been in a number of hearings where being able to point out that Social Security previously noted a claimant’s past work as an unsuccessful work attempt made all the difference.
