How is the term “education” used as a vocational factor in an SSI or Social Security Disability claim?

“Education” is primarily used to mean formal schooling such as graduation from high school or college or other training which contributes to your ability to meet job requirements. This could involved getting a certification of a licensed job such as a hairdresser, a nurse , a Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA) or a licensed clinical social worker. By having formal education this may demonstrate your reasoning skills, communication skills or math abilities. If you don’t have a formal education this doesn’t mean that you are uneducated or lack these abilities.
