Next we provide a workable plan to obtain the evidence you will need to prove your case. To qualify, one must have a severe impairment likely to last 12 months or longer, and you must not be able to engage in substantial work activity. The statutes and regulations (together, the social security law), make it easier to be found disabled as you get older.

Next must not be able to do your past relevant work (jobs over the last 15 years) because of physical or mental restrictions. Then you must prove your limitations meet certain guidelines which vary depending on your age and transferable skills. The standards is difficult if you are younger than 50 years old.
