Am I Too Young (or Too Old) for Social Security Disability?
Social Security disability benefits are based on the number of years a person has worked and paid into the Social Security disability system prior to the date they became disabled. Therefore, although age may play a part in approval of benefits, it matters only in the aspect that a person may not be old enough to have put in the required time. In another article we reviewed the Recent Work Test and outlined the criteria the Social Security Administration uses to determine eligibility so we will not rehash that in this article.
