Are You Old Enough for Social Security Disability? Florida Social Security Disability Lawyer
Being unable to work and being found disabled are two different things. The Social Security Administration uses a grid system as apart of the Five Step Sequential Evaluation which is heavily weighted based on age.
If you are under the age of 45 or 50 and you can’t do your past jobs or work full time at any regular job, you should be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.
