Or does any of this make sense?

It helps to know what the Social Security Judge is thinking when deciding your case.

If you are under 50 years of age, the Social Security rules say that if you can perform any work full time, then you are not disabled.

This is a pretty high standard for you to meet. There is usually some type of sit down job that a vocational expert or judge may think you can perform.

You have to convince the Administrative Law Judge that you cannot perform any job.

If you are 50 years of age or over you may be found disabled even though you can still perform certain jobs.

For instance, if you can only work a sit down job then you can still be found disabled. This is general statement because depending on your past relevant work and transferable skills you may be found not disabled.

As you can see it gets complicated. As are the arguments you must make.
