Helping Determine If You Are Eligible Under Special Rules
Older workers are more prone to injuries or illness, and do not recover as quickly. Many are not able to return to their previous jobs or find new full-time work that they are able to do. The Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes that workers over the age of 50 face additional challenges in returning to the workforce and makes special allowances in their Social Security Disability claims.
- Are you over the age of 50 and unable to sustain work?
- Do your cumulative injuries from decades of work add up to disability?
- Have you always done heavy labor and now can only perform light duty or desk work?
- Are you unemployable even though you do not meet the SSA’s medical criteria?
If any of the above applies to your situation, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability under the SSA’s special rules for over-50 claimants. The legal team at Abromson & Carey, Attorneys at Law, in Newark can gauge the merits of your case and pursue the benefits you deserve.

An Experienced Social Security Disability Claim Lawyer
For more than three decades , attorney Glenn Carey has been helping people qualify for disability benefits. He is intimately familiar with the medical criteria for dozens of physical and mental impairments. He is also knowledgeable about the special vocational allowance for older claimants — at age 50 and over and additional considerations at age 55 and beyond.
Based on the combination of impairment, age, education and work history, you may “grid out” and qualify for Social Security Disability even if you do not strictly meet the criteria for a listed medical condition. Workers with limited job skills or only a high school diploma, for instance, are more likely to have worked in physically demanding jobs which they are now unable to do.
