Special Medical-Vocational Exceptions – 55 years of age, limited education, no past work experience

by | Apr 24, 2023 | SSD - Social Security Disability |

There are certain circumstances that are outlined which result in an award of disability. One is if you are over the age of 55, have no more than an 11th grade education, and no work arising to substantial gainful activity in the previous 15 years, and have at least one severe medically determinable impairment. This means, so long as you have one medically determinable impairment for which you have medical records, and meet the vocational profile above, you will be found disabled.

Often in cases such as this, the hearing is very short. If you fall within this profile, and have a very short hearing, don’t worry if you don’t get time to say much!
