Over 50 And Have A Claim? We Can Help

While not everyone is eligible for benefits, it is often easier for people over 50 years of age to qualify for the disability benefits they need. If you are over age 50, the Social Security Administration uses different standards to evaluate your eligibility for SSDI and SSI benefits.

However, it is still important to work with an experienced attorney to make sure your claim is filed correctly and persuasively. At the Hudson Valley area Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C., we have years of experience helping people over age 50 get SSDI and SSI benefits.

Filing Your Claim Correctly

When deciding whether or not to award SSDI and SSI benefits, the government considers a range of factors, including your age, education and prior work experience.

Younger people may be expected to learn new work skills or use transferable work skills to get jobs that better accommodate their disability. However, people over age 50 and 55 are not expected to start over and learn new skills.

Contact A Lawyer About Your SSDI And SSI Benefits

Your family and friends may have lots of advice about getting SSDI and SSI benefits. But the best way to avoid misinformation is to speak to a lawyer about your options.
