Mental Demands of Unskilled Work

The basic mental demands of competitive unskilled work include the ability to perform the following activities on a sustained basis:

  1. understand, carry out, and remember simple instructions;
  2. make judgments that are commensurate with the functions of unskilled work ( simple work related decisions);
  3. respond appropriately to supervision, coworkers and work situations; and,
  4. deal with changes in a routine work setting.

“A substantial loss of ability to meet any of the basic mental demands listed [above] . . . would justify a finding of inability to perform other work. . . .”
