Age DOES Matter

Sorry, John; don’t want to see argumentative, but it is clearly stated that requirements for those OVER 50, who are trying to get a disability, are more relaxed than for those under 50. I get what you’re saying…if your disability is great enough, age doesn’t matter. But, for some, who have “borderline” illnesses (and that’s by SS’s determination, not MINE), being over 50 can make things easier. I’ve been told that they start taking into account your ability to retrain, rehire, etc., after that age, as well as recovery times from illnesses, surgeries, etc.
