Eastern Missouri and Southern Illinois Social Security Disability Lawyers
It may not seem possible now, but your age could play to your advantage as you seek the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits you need. If a disabling injury or other severe impairment is preventing you from doing the kind of work you have done throughout your life, you need an experienced Social Security disability lawyer on your side.
At Crowe & Shanahan in St. Louis, we work closely with disabled workers over the age of 50 to help them get the benefits they need. We understand that while it is hard to start over at any age, it can be particularly difficult after age 50 when you have spent an entire career building skills in a particular field you can no longer work in.
Over the age of 50 and unable to continue in your current job due to an injury or disability? We can help. To set up a meeting with one of our St. Louis over-age-50 claims attorneys, please call us at 314-231-6660 or toll free at 877-213-7793.
Workers Over Age 50 Face Significant Challenges
While you cannot qualify for Social Security disability benefits based on your age alone, we understand the difficulties you face. It can be much harder after the age of 50 to retrain for new work or adjust to a new position. We are not alone — the Social Security Administration (SSA) knows this too.
If you are over 50 and do not have educational skills that are transferable to a position that you can perform in, we will seek to secure the benefits you need to maintain your quality of life now that you are unable to work.
