The Rules Are Relaxed If You Are over 50
Illness and injuries can substantially impact the ability of someone over the age of 50 to meet deadlines or perform certain job-related tasks. Even if you’re able to work, you may still qualify for disability benefits, depending on the nature of your job, your health condition, and your work history. At the Law Offices of Ed Goldner our attorneys work closely with disabled people over 50 in applying for and receiving Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Since most first time applications for SSDI or SSI are rejected, it’s important to understand the appeals process, what medical evidence can be provided, and how to present your case. Our lawyers will gather and prepare all relevant paperwork and documentation and represent you at any stage of the application or appeals process. To schedule a free consultation, contact the Social Security benefits lawyers at the Law Offices of Ed Goldner today.
What Could Effect Your Application
Just because you receive SSDI or SSI benefits does not mean you can’t work. While each case is different, certain chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, arthritis, or bi-polar disorder do not necessarily prevent people from working reduced hours. If you are interested in working part-time, our attorneys can explain the options available to you and what needs to be done in order to verify your condition and need to work reduced hours.
While your ability to work part-time may affect the amount of SSDI or SSI benefits you receive, it’s likely you will still make more money working part-time and receiving some disability benefits than if you stopped working and depended on SSDI or SSI alone. Contact us HERE for a free consultation.
