If you’ve been denied Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you’re far from alone.
Social Security denies most people when they first apply.
At Angelina Valle & Associates, we strongly encourage you to consider appealing.
Appeals are when many people win benefits.
A key piece of your appeal is filling out Form HA-4633, which is called “Claimant’s Work Background.”
Don’t delay starting your appeal. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a strict deadline for appeals. If you miss it, you might have to start over your application from the beginning.
To appeal your denial, you’ll have two other forms you need to submit before you complete Form HA-4633.
First, complete Form HA-4486: “Claimant’s Statement When Request for Hearing is Filed and the Issue is Disability.”
Also, fill out Form SSA-3441-BK: “Disability Report – Appeal.”
Once you’re finished with those, you’ll next fill out Form HA-4633.
And you’ll complete this form along with Form HA-4631, covering your recent medical treatment.
Getting your forms submitted on time is important to your case. You usually have about 60 days from your denial.
When you submit the forms before the deadline Social Security gives you, you keep your claim open and active.
You can fill out the form online, or fill out and return a paper form to a Social Security office.

What Information Do I Put on Form HA-4633?
You’ll list several details of your work history:
- Dates of your past jobs
- Names of your employers
- Addresses of your employers
- Descriptions of your job duties
Tips on Filling out Form HA-4633
Most of the time, you’ll need to include 15 years of work history – before the date when you first experienced your disability – on Form HA-4633.
Fill out the form as honestly and completely as you can.
With this form, the SSA is trying to decide if your disability prevents you from doing your previous work, or if you can adjust to different work.
If you had a physically demanding job in construction, for example, could you still switch to a less physical office job?
You need to prove to Social Security that your medical condition is severe enough that you couldn’t work any job.
Form HA-4633 is a chance to give a clear picture of your work history to Social Security.
