Age Limitations on Mobility Explained by an Ocala Social Security Disability Lawyer

  • Published: January 7, 2014

As you get older, a variety of afflictions may affect your mobility. These conditions may qualify you for Social Security disability benefits. To learn if your impairment qualifies for benefits, you will want to talk to an Ocala Social Security disability lawyer.

Need to Rest or Lie Down

Older individuals may need to rest or lie down during the workday. However, an Ocala Social Security disability lawyer can tell you that very few jobs provide such an opportunity to an older worker. As a result, if you have an impairment that requires lying down for a period of time, you may be entitled to benefits.

Problems Sitting

A sedentary job typically involves needing to sit for a good part of the workday. An Ocala Social Security disability attorney can explain how your ability to perform such jobs will be significantly eroded if you cannot sit for extended periods of time.

Elevation of Legs

An Ocala Social Security disability lawyer can tell you that a number of conditions may require an individual to elevate one or both legs when sitting. Again, many jobs do not provide the worker such an opportunity.

Fine Movements of Hands

Impairments related to age may affect an individual’s ability to handle small objects and perform other duties with their hands. Significant limitations of handling abilities may eliminate a large number of possible occupations.
