Suffering a disability over 50 can be especially devastating for disabled individuals and their families.

It is more difficult for those over 50 to recover from a disability and to be able to reenter the workplace. As a result, disabled individuals over 50 who apply for Social Security disability benefits are given special consideration by the Social Security Administration.

SSD benefits are available to disabled individuals who are unable to engage in gainful activity and would be unable to adjust to another type of work. For those over 50, this can be even more difficult.
Trained guidance through the application and appeals processes can help disabled individuals over 50 with the struggles they face providing for themselves and their families and their daily needs while they are unable to work because of their disability. Many disabled individuals and families, including those over 50, rely on SSD benefits to get by which is why they should know how they can get the benefits they need.
