Understanding Disability


Category: Article

... or "I can't go back to being a roofer, so why am I not disabled?"

I hear this all the time from people. They have become injured, or time has taken its toll and they are no longer able to do the job they used to do. This does not mean that they are disabled. Social Security defines disability as the inability to sustain any job on a full time basis. Certainly age can enter into how they make their decision, but if an individual is under 50 and their conditions prevent them from returning to their former career, Social Security will deny the claim and tell them to do something else.
