AGE And SSD And SSI - Over The Age Of 50 And 55AGE And SSD And SSI - Over The Age Of 50 And 55 If you are 50 or older and can no longer do the work you have done in the past 15 years, then Social Security must take your age into account when considering whether or not you can do other work. These rules are the Medical-Vocational Guidelines also known as the "Grids".

If you are 50 years of age or older and are limited to unskilled sedentary work, Social Security will presume that you cannot adapt or transition to other work. This can lead to vastly different results in a claim. A 49 year old limited to unskilled sedentary work may lose his disability case, but will win it at age 50.

At age 55, it gets easier. A person who is limited to unskilled light work is presumed to be unable to adapt and learn new work.

It is very important to remember that you do not get the benefit of these rules until the 5th step of the disability evaluation process.  Therefore it is very important to rule out your past relevant work at step 4. The best way to do that is to fully flesh out the physical and mental requirements of your past 15 years of work in your application.

Don’t risk getting less than you deserve for your case. We’re here to help.


You pay nothing until we win

Here are the different elements of what you’ll experience during this in-depth consultation:


A Real, Live Face-to-Face Meeting

We’ll meet face-to-face to discuss the specific details of your disability . You won’t be filling out a web-based data entry form, sending an email, sitting on hold waiting for a real human to answer – you and I will sit down in a room and talk things through. We’ll get to know each other the old-fashioned way – where we can share and learn from each other.


A Comprehensive Situational Assessment

I’ll let you tell your story in your own words – you talk, I listen.


A Preliminary Documentation Review

I’ll conduct a preliminary review of any supporting documentation you have that’s relevant to the situation.


An Honest and Open Q&A Session

I’ll answer any questions that you may have. I’ll be open, honest, and do everything I can to answer your questions to the best of my ability.


Your Customized “Next Steps to Fairness” Proposal

Finally, after going over your situation, I’ll lay out in clear, easy-to-understand language, what I see as the strengths and weaknesses of your claim. In addition, you’ll walk away with specific suggestions on what I see as your best course of action moving forward.


I am tired of seeing good people being short changed by lawyers with clever advertising who are giving a bad name to great attorneys who are true advocates for the clients. We want to show you how you can find the best attorney for your case at no additional expense to you.
