Real, Effective Legal Help For Aging and Disabled Citizens
As longtime Social Security disability lawyers, we understand the difficulties a 50-year-old or older man or woman goes through when work is no longer an option. Virtually every day, we meet someone who planned to work until retirement age but had that plan disrupted by a back injury, a stroke, crippling pain, or a disease or mental impairment such as severe depression.
Generally speaking, Social Security Administration guidelines and officials are more receptive to claims by individuals age 50 and over — especially those with a substantial work history. Depending on your circumstances, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or both. If you qualify, we can help get the benefits you've earned.
Experienced Counsel for Your Claim or Appeal
Attorneys, Michael J. Mooney and Stephen H. Olden, both have decades of experience helping people get the government benefits they deserve. If you are over age 50 and you worked in the recent past, there may be a very good chance we can help you get benefits — even if you have filed on your own and your claim was denied. We appeal many age 50 and older claims.
Some points to consider:
- Although Social Security disability benefits are for "total disability" from work, officials may consider your experience and recognize, for example, that a person who has always done physical labor may not have the skills needed for a sit-down job even though they could do it physically.
- If you have recently turned age 50, now may be the right time for you to file your claim — regardless of when you stopped working.
- If you have a disabling work-related injury or occupational disease and are collecting Workers' Compensation, it is best not to wait until those benefits end to file a Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claim. File now.
