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.
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.
Consult our firm to learn whether you qualify for disability benefits under the SSD guidelines for people over 50.
