The Social Security Administration (SSA) works to tailor the benefits it provides to the actual circumstances of those who need them. When disability strikes, there is an expectation that the disabled worker will attempt to find another course of employment that is compatible with the disability.

Grid Regulations And Their Impact On Those 50 And Over

For older workers who are trying to adapt to the impact of a disability, the SSA takes into account the challenges of adapting to new jobs or new lines of work as they get older. Many people, as they age, find that it is progressively more difficult for them to learn the new skills necessary to succeed in a new line of work that is compatible with their disability.

The SSA uses what is called the grid regulations. The grid regulations factor in a number of factors to aid in the determination of disability, including:

  • Age
  • Education
  • Previous work experience

The SSA understands that these factors can have a huge impact on a disabled worker’s ability to learn a new skill set and that can prevent him or her from moving over to new jobs that he or she could otherwise perform in.
