Why does Social Security in a disability or SSI claim only consider work I have done over the last 15 years?

A gradual change occurs in most jobs so that after fifteen years it is no longer realistic to expect the skills and abilities acquired in that job continue to apply. The fifteen year guide is intended to make sure that work done long ago is not used against you in determining if you are disabled. Jobs which were done only off and on or for short periods of time may ended up not being considered if you didn’t work full time and make enough money to be considered Substantial Gainful Activity.
