The Social Security Administration recognizes that it is often harder for disabled people age fifty and better to find new employment. They consider several factors when determining eligibility for SSD benefits.
- Age: Are you fifty years old or older? The older you are, the harder it can be to retrain and change careers.
- Education: Do you have a high school degree or less? People with less education are less likely to be able to transition to a new type of work.
- Background: If you’ve always performed jobs requiring physical labor, you may have difficulty securing other types of work.
- Language: If you cannot speak English, you may be inhibited from finding a position.
