BLOG: OLD DOGS AND NEW TRICKS
Just because you’ve been denied your social security disability benefits doesn’t mean you should wait until you are old enough to retire.
When you apply for ANY SOCIAL SECURITY disability benefits the administration consider:
A. your residual functional capacity or HOW YOU FUNCTION WITH YOUR SERIOUS IMPAIRMENT;
B. your education;
C. your work experience; and
D. your AGE;
The decision of being disabled is NEVER based on age alone although as you get older, it DOES become an increasingly limiting factor in YOUR ability to work.
At the law offices of Joumana Kayrouz, WE KNOW as far as the application process is concerned, NOTHING is set in stone. If you are close to an older age category that will bring you closer to being found disabled, WE CAN AND WILL MAKE the Administration round THAT number up to get you YOUR BENEFITS.
1. ALTHOUGH if you are under the age of 50, age is almost never considered for purposes of establishing disability,
2. If you are approaching advanced age between 50-54, the Social Security Administration MUST consider your age along with your severe impairment that SERIOUSLY affects your ability to work.
3. Advanced age is 55 and older and SIGNIFICANTLY affects a person's ability to work.
At the law offices of Joumana Kayrouz, we STUDY the details of the law that many attorneys miss. We UNDERESTAND that each individual is unique which means your application for benefits is unique and very important TO YOU, AND US. We only represent individuals and we FIGHT to prove you case each and every time making sure that you get the benefits you deserve.
