 You’ve Worked Hard Your Entire Life.

How I help You

At your age, it’s harder than ever to find a job. Your medical problems make it nearly impossible for you to work. And you’re not sure where to turn.

 I do. Special rules with a section of the Social Security code offer provisions for people over the age of 50. These provisions can mean the difference between winning and losing. I’ve helped thousands of people in your position, and I’d like to help you.

 When and How Your Age Matters

As you get older, the rules change to make it easier for you to win benefits. Here’s how:

 50 to 54

These are the ages of the first bracket. In this bracket, you can be approved for disability benefits if you are still able to perform sedentary work (as long as your past work was not skilled). You can also get benefits if your skills don’t transfer to other employment opportunities.

 55 to 59

In this bracket, you can be approved for disability benefits even if you’re able to perform light work. That said, you can be denied if you have an 11th grade or lower education and no past work.

 60 to 64

In this bracket, you can be approved for disability benefits even if you’re able to perform light work if you have a high school degree or higher. You are also eligible if you can perform medium work, but have an 11th grade education or lower.
