Collect The Social Security Disability Payments You Deserve

If you are over the age of 50 and disabled, you can still apply for Social Security Disability benefits. Under the so-called "worn-out worker" rule, and other similar Social Security laws, you may be eligible for disability benefits even if you have been cast aside by your employer due to your age.

At King Law Firm, P.C., our founding attorney, David J. King, is an experienced and compassionate Social Security Disability attorney who will fight for you and work diligently to get you the disability benefits you deserve. Serving the greater Sioux Falls area — as well as northwest Iowa — for over 25 years, we take an aggressive approach when helping clients obtain the compensation they deserve.

Eligibility For SSDI Benefits

The Social Security Administration (SSA) determines your initial eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits (referred to as SSD or SSDI) through a series of questions about your alleged disability, your ability to return to work and your ability to perform some other kind of work.

Some conditions that are typically eligible for disability compensation are:

  • Autism
  • Autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
  • Cancer
  • Disorders of the musculoskeletal system, including back and joint problems
  • Fibromyalgia
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Hearing and vision loss
  • Heart failure and coronary artery disease
  • Liver and bowel disease
  • Mental disorders, including schizophrenia, depression and anxiety
  • Neurological diseases, including cerebral palsy, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease
  • Respiratory ailments, including cystic fibrosis and asthma
  • Sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other blood disorders

If you are over the age of 50 and disabled, we can help you apply for benefits through the SSA. We will guide you through the entire process with care and determination. If you think you are too old to apply or qualify, think again. If you have already been denied Social Security Disability payments, we can help you reapply or appeal the SSA's adverse decision.
