What Role Does My Age Play in Receiving Social Security Disability?

2013-05-12 03:36:32 (GMT) (JusticeNewsFlash.com - Press Release, Social Security)


04/12/2013 // Wright Disability Firm // Wright & Wright // (press release)

One of the most common questions people have about eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits is whether they are too old or too young. Although age is a factor considered by the Social Security Administration in approving or denying benefits, being “too old” or “too young” is not the criteria where age is used to determine one’s ability to receive payments. Age is considered along with other factors such as one’s educational background and work experience to determine what benefits a person is eligible to receive.

Applicants may be grouped by their age and other factors to determine their “residual functional capacity” or the level of work they may be able to perform. Those at younger ages may be deemed able to perform at a higher capacity despite physical limitations that may be caused by a disability, depending on the severity and nature of their condition. Those in the younger age categories may also be able to receive additional training or education that would allow them to still perform certain types of work or find employment, even when their disability is considered.

For older individuals their advancing age may make it easier to receive approval because of the limitations on what they can be expected to be able to take on with a disability. The expectation of additional training or the ability to still physically function at a certain capacity may not be feasible for applicants who are older.
