1. Be 50 years old or older. The older you are the easier it is to win. The rules are less strict when you hit 50 years of age. You can win your Social Security Disability case if you are under 50 years old, but you must prove you cannot do any job.

2. Go to your doctors and tell them about all your problems. Social Security Disability is all about the medical.

3. Know your judge. Each ALJ (the judge) is a person. They have their own likes and dislikes.

4. Stay away from drugs and alcohol. You will most likely be denied if you have a drug or alcohol problem.

5. Know what to ask the Vocational Expert. They can make or break your case.
