What is the short answer? No, there definitely is not a minimum age to file for Social Security Disability and Social Security categorizes young adults as 18-44 years old. However, you should know that it can be more difficult for a younger person to succeed on their Disability claim. The standards a person in this category must reach to be considered disabled are a bit higher than someone in an older category.
If you are a young person coping with a serious disability and feel like you can no longer work or have never been able to work, it may be worth filing for Disability.
