Social Security And Age

Age is a crucial factor which often determines whether or not Social Security Disability benefits are granted or denied.

If you are over 55 years old and do not believe that you are able to perform any of the jobs that you have had in the last 15 years, you may qualify for benefits.  At age 60, the Social Security Laws make it even easier to secure benefits.  Even if you are younger than 55, you may qualify for benefits.  Even if you are not sure if your medical condition meets the criteria to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits it cannot hurt to file your application.

If you are denied, be sure to contact an attorney immediately as you only have 60 days to object to that denial and request a hearing.
