Your Education Level Affects The Eligibility of SSD

Your Education Level Affects The Eligibility of SSD

  • If you are Highly Educated, it will be harder for you to receive Social Security Disability Benefits
  • Social Security is likely to determine that you are Capable of more Jobs in the Semi-Skilled and Skilled Area, or that you have Transferable Skills
  • If you Lack a High School Education, you will fall into one of three Categories-
  • These Categories include Limited Education, Marginal Education, and Illiteracy and Fluency in the English Language
  • Limited Education is if you left School between 7th and 11th Grade, which will limit you to performing Unskilled Work
  • Marginal Education is leaving school at or before 6th Grade, which will greatly assist your Claim for Benefits
  • Illiteracy and Fluency in the English Language can greatly help an Individual between the Ages of 45 and 54
