Over-50 Disability Applicants
Our Boise disability attorneys realize that at 50 and over, after you have worked your whole life and suddenly find yourself unable to perform the tasks you have been doing for years, finding a job you can do can be especially difficult. The jobs you have spent your life doing are no longer an option, and changing careers is particularly difficult for those over 50 years old. If you are over 50 years old and can no longer do the work you have done in the past 15 years, you should speak a knowledgeable Social Security disability lawyer about applying for disability.
Social Security will look at several factors such as age, education, and background and past work experience. All of these factors combine to determine whether you are able to continue working. When you’re over 50, Social Security guidelines recognize that it is harder for you to find alternative work—this is particularly true if your past work history contains only physically demanding jobs.
Our advocates for the disabled can help you through the Social Security Disability process. We know that you would rather be working as you have all your life, but if you are over 50 and have a disability that makes it impossible for you to perform your past work, contact our Social Security experts today. We will do everything possible to make sure you get the benefits you earned while you were working.
