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.
