A: At 39 years of age you probably will have to go to the third step which is a hearing before a judge. You will need to show you cannot do easy sit down work by medical evidence.
I would say your chances at the reconsideration level are poor, but your chances at the hearing level are pretty good. Please let me know if anyone at my office can give you more detail on what has to be proven, particularly when it comes to working a sedentary job.
