When does age become a factor that Social Security uses in determining if I am disabled?

Age becomes a factor if you are physically and/or mentally not capable of returning to any of the jobs you have done in the 15 years before you became disabled. This is why many doctors who have never worked for Social Security Disability are confused when they have two patients with same condition and same severity but one patient gets Social Security Disability benefits or SSI benefits and the other one does not not. At a certain point in the process it involves vocational issues rather than medical issues.
