Grid Eligibility

Understanding Grid Eligibility

What Are the Medical-Vocational Guidelines?

Not all claims win based solely on medical evidence. Grid eligibility, also known as grid rules, is a group of factors that the Social Security Administration takes into consideration when evaluating your case. They’re called “medical-vocational guidelines.” These guidelines focus more on your work history, age, and education level and less on medical evidence. The Social Security Administration recognizes that as a person ages, they typically have an increasingly difficult time finding employment. Essentially, employers may not offer entry level positions to an applicant over 50 years old. This, combined with having less education and fewer job skills, makes it harder to find a job. These occupational circumstances are categorized in the grid rules.
