Why does Social Security only look at the work I have done over the past 15 years in determining whether I can go back to that work?

Changes occur over time in most jobs as far as the skills and abilities acquired from those jobs so it is not always realistic to assume a person still has those skills and abilities as what it takes to still do that job. Just consider all the changes in technology we have seen in the last 15 years. This rule is intended to insure that very old work experience does not work against a person applying for benefits.
