Claimants over the age of 50 have a better chance of being approved for Social Security Disability benefits as the definition of disability changes for people older than 50.
If physical impairment requirements are not met, claimants over 50 can still be approved based on a grid system that evaluates age, education and related past work and skills. Once a claimant turns 55, getting approved gets even easier.
If you are over age 50, the Social Security Administration will consider your age as well as your medical condition and limited work experience in adjusting to other work. At age 55 or older, the Social Security Administration recognizes that you may have significant problems in adjusting to other work and the Social Security Administration also has specific rules for those who are closely approaching retirement age (age 60 and older).
