More Women Are Meeting Social Security Disability Qualifications

by Staff | May 30th, 2014

It’s no secret that getting approved for Social Security Disability benefits can be difficult. Having an insight into what demographics are most likely to receive an approval may prove effective in helping you to understand what is needed for your claim.

A recent study showed an increasing rate of women meeting the Social Security Disability Qualifications. The increase was found to have especially spiked in younger women.

NewsMax explains the National Center for Policy Analysis found the rate of women being approved for Social Security Disability benefits had climbed by 19 percent over the past 42 years.

Researchers also concluded that more women between the ages of 30 and 39 years old were receiving benefits as compared to men of the same age.

One noted reason for the increase was the changes that have been made to Social Security Disability regulations over the years. Experts pointed out the reforms to the laws have eased the restrictions to receive benefits over time.
