Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability Benefits?
Social Security Disability benefits were designed to provide financial support to individuals who are unable to work due to a disability. The SSDA defines “disability” as a mental or physical impairment that is medically verifiable and that will either result in death or last for more than 12 months; disabilities impact the recipient’s inability to work.
The requirements for Social Security Disability payments depend on the person’s individual circumstances and the type of aid sought. Individuals seeking SSI benefits must be both disabled and part of a low-income family, and need not have worked in the past (disabled children can receive SSI benefits if their parents fall below a certain income bracket). On the other hand, SSD benefits depend on the amount of time the disabled person has been in the workforce. Generally, younger workers must fulfill different requirements, and the government asks that claimants have worked at least five of the last ten years.
The federal government’s disability is strictly related to ability to perform paying work, not ability to find a job or regain employment after a period of illness. Medical proof, including clinical and laboratory findings, is required to prove your disability if you seek Social Security Disability payments.
