MAKING A DISABILITY CLAIM AFTER AGE 50
For adult social security disability and SSI cases, age becomes a beneficial factor at specific age points. The Social Security Administration has special rules for claimants over the age of 50. Under the current medical-vocational rules (known as the “the grid” or “grids”), it becomes much easier to qualify for disability after you turn 50 years of age.
Additionally, there is a better chance for a long term disability law firm to obtain an “on the record” (i.e. without a hearing) decision when a claimant is over 50 and can no longer do the sort of work he or she did in the past.
If you are over 50 years old and are limited to unskilled sedentary work, Social Security will presume that you are unable to transition to other work due to your age. This can make a huge difference for your claim. A person limited to unskilled sedentary work may lose his or her disability claim at age 48, but will win it at age 50.
DISABILITY CLAIMS FOR AGES 55 AND OLDER
There are some benefits to aging. WIth Social Security Disability, it becomes easier again to qualify for disability after the age of 55. If you are limited to unskilled, light exertion work, someone over the age of 55 is presumed to be unable to transition to other work.
