Over The Age Of 50? It May Be Easier For You To Get Disability Benefits.
Obtaining disability benefits is not an easy process, but it becomes easier for people at age 50 and older. The experienced legal team at the law office of John Nguyen, Attorney at Law, offers a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
The Social Security Administration holds a strict definition of disability, and you may have had a claim denied in the past because you could still perform some types of jobs with your medical limitations. Once you reach the age of 50, however, you may qualify based on your age.
Why Do Older Applicants Have More Success?
The SSA acknowledges the fact that it is more difficult for older workers to find employment or change employment when they have a serious medical condition. Once you reach age 50, the SSA will consider the following factors when evaluating your disability claim:
- Your ability to work due to a medical condition
- The severity of your medical condition
- Your current abilities versus your past vocational abilities
It becomes less difficult to get disability benefits once you reach the age of 50 or older.
