If you have been denied for Social Security Disability benefits and meet the three criteria listed below, you may be successful when your case is heard before a Law Judge.
- To be considered a “worn out worker” one must have 35 years experience in an unskilled job;
- It must be demonstrated that that person is physically unable to perform the unskilled labor he or she has done for so long;
- The worker must have no more than a 6th grade education
If these criteria can be met and the medical evidence supports an inability to work in the unskilled position, you may have a decent chance of approval at the hearing level.
If you have been denied benefits and have questions regarding your specific circumstance, please feel free to contact our office for a free consultation.
