If you're over 50, is getting approved for Social Security Disability more in your favor?

The American Law Journal presents "Disability Over 50-Why Age Counts in Social Security Disability Matters." Host Christopher Naughton welcomes claimants' attorneys Jess Leventhal of Leventhal Sutton and Gornstein and Alan Polonsky of Polonsky & Polonsky. Rebecca Vallas, Managing Director of the Poverty to Prosperity Program with the Center for American Progress, joins the discussion from CNN studios in Washington, D.C.

"Once a person reaches 50, the rules of the game change," says Leventhal. "Most people don't realize that a slight shift in category and going to the 'grid rules' could make or break a case."

The American Law Journal, recent winner of a Mid-Atlantic Emmy® award for 2015 is the weekly talk-feature program airing on the CNN-News affiliate for Philadelphia, WFMZ-TV 69 to Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Program 1608.
