A Waterloo Social Security Attorney on Qualifying for Disability Benefits

A question often asked of a Waterloo Social Security attorney is whether a potential claimant is considered disabled enough to file an application to receive benefits. This is more of a difficult question than one may think.

The Social Security Administration defines “disabled” in a way that differs from what one commonly thinks. The following will provide you with some sense of how one can qualify.

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN AGE AND BENEFITS

A Waterloo Social Security lawyer will tell you that receiving a finding of disability becomes easier the older you are. From age 45 to 60, the likelihood of receiving benefits becomes increases. A person above age 50 suffering from significant impairment and unable to do all but the simplest forms of employment should also apply.

YOUNGER PEOPLE SHOULD ALSO APPLY FOR BENEFITS

It is possible for a Waterloo Social Security lawyer to assist a younger client in receiving benefits. The person doesn’t have to be wheelchair bound or confined to bed to receive a disability finding. Not being able to work at past jobs or work at a full time job can be sufficient.

If you are unable to work, it is worth it to apply for Social Security disability benefits. Even if you are denied, there is the option of appealing the decision until it is heard by an administrative law judge. There is also the choice to appeal if the ALJ denies the claim.
