How Does My Age Affect My Ability To Apply?
As soon as you turn 50, all of the rules regarding Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits change. It is very important for you and your attorney to understand how these changes affect you, your situation and your application for disability benefits.
At Midwest Disability, P.A., all we do is handle disability benefit claims. We understand how applying for SSD after 50 will change your eligibility and what that can do for you. To learn more, please call us at (888)351-0427 or 888-351-0427 toll free, or fill out our free case evaluation form.
Because the medical and vocational guidelines take into account your past work history, education and age, it may be easier to receive benefits as soon as you turn 50, depending on your job. For instance, if you are 49 years old and have always done heavy work in the past but now can only do a job that allows you to sit, certain factors are considered in your eligibility. Once you turn 50, those factors change, making acceptance of your application more likely. Similar rule changes apply when an applicant turns 55.
Our lawyers will review all of these issues with you and help you determine if it is better for you to apply now or to wait until you reach a specific age to help your eligibility status. We will guide you through the entire process. Our goal is to help you get disability benefits so you can take care of yourself and your family.
We can help you no matter where you live. From our offices in Minnesota, we help clients throughout the U.S.
