Indianapolis Over Age 50 Claims Lawyers

Lafayette SSD Benefits Attorneys

Qualifying for SSD Benefits as an Older Worker

Even the biggest bureaucracies can make sense some of the time and the Social Security Administration is no exception.

Recognizing that the combination of being disabled and being an older worker is important — the SSA has made it is easier for people aged 50 and older to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. Essentially, this means that you will not be held to the same standard in terms of your potential for "other types of gainful employment" as a younger applicant. What it does not mean is that you can qualify for SSD benefits on the basis of age alone.

Without special skills, it can be hard enough to find a new job after the age of 50 — even if your health isn't a problem. If you have a disability, it may well be impossible. My name is Michael G. Myers and as an attorney, I can help you get the disability benefits you deserve.
