Handling SSD Benefit Claims For People Over 50

Over 50If you are over 50 and can no longer work because of a permanent disability, it is important to speak with an attorney to learn about your rights to benefits. At Terry Katz & Associates, PC, we have been helping disabled individuals in this demographic obtain Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits since 1992. If you are wondering about your future, we can help.

Experience, Knowledge, Compassion And Results

The Social Security Administration makes it relatively easy for people over age 50 to obtain SSD benefits, when compared with other workers. For example, if you have been in the same industry your whole life, you will usually not be expected to learn a new trade — as would be the case with someone younger. Rather, you will be granted benefits.

Yet even with different eligibility standards, many people over 50 have their initial claims denied. Appealing the decision is the next step. Serving throughout Long Island and New York City, our lawyers will manage your appeal from the beginning to the end. We handle all the details, go to court to fight for you and ensure that your appeal is complete, timely and persuasive.

Do Not Give Up If Your Initial Claim Is Denied — We Can Help

We represent people in the construction industry whose back problems have become disabling. We have helped carpenters with hand injuries who can no longer handle the tools of their trade. Our clients have included long haul truckers, warehouse workers and others working in physically demanding jobs. Whatever your industry, our lawyers will review your age, work history and education to determine whether you might qualify for SSD benefits under the "over 50" eligibility guidelines.
