How to Fill Out Form SSA-3369-BK in San Jose

Work History Report

When you’re applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, there’s one thing you can’t avoid: filling out a lot of forms.

The form where you describe your work history – Form SSA-3369 – is a key part of your disability claim. This form is part of filing your basic application for benefits.

Form SSA-3369 is called the “Work History Report.”

You’ll use it to explain the jobs you did in the 15 years before medical problems forced you from work. You’ll need to detail the physical demands of each job.

What Information Do I Need for Form SSA-3369?

You’ll need to gather this information:

  • Your job titles
  • The dates of each job you held
  • Tasks you performed
  • Supervisory roles you had
  • How much weight you lifted in each job
  • How many hours you spent standing in each job
  • How much you did other physical maneuvers, such as walking, climbing, stooping, kneeling or crawling

Where Do I Send Form SSA-3369?

You can file Form SSA-3369 online with the Social Security Administration (SSA). You file it when you first apply for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

You also can fill out this report in person during your interview with an SSA claims representative if you’re not applying online.

It can be better to apply in person if you think you’re going to have questions understanding the form.

What Happens After I File Form SSA-3369?

Along with Form SSA-3368, this report starts your Social Security Disability claim.

In California, an SSA claims representative forwards this form to a state Disability Determination Services (DDS) office.

DDS is a state division that makes an initial decision on your case.

After DDS gives its opinion, an SSA claims examiner evaluates your application.

It’s important to provide complete and accurate information on this form. Missing or wrong information can cause your benefits to get delayed or denied.

That’s why you should double-check details such as exact job titles, dates and duties.

Providing thorough information also increases the chance that the claims examiner will understand your situation.
