DI 25025.022 Using a Medical-Vocational Rule as a Framework When the Issue of Transferable Skills is Not Material to the Determination

A. How to determine if transferability of skills is not material to the determination

If the claimant has past relevant skilled or semiskilled work and the decision rules for skills transferable and skills not transferable both direct a finding of not disabled, the issue is not material to the determination.

B. Using a rule as a framework when transferability of skills is not material to the determination

Use the rule for skills not transferable as a framework for a determination when transferability of skills is not material to the determination. It is not necessary to cite jobs for this type of framework determination if the claimant’s RFC, age, and education match the requirement of the not transferable rule.
