Do I Qualify?

Do you qualify for Social Security disability benefits?

While you may be unable to work, that fact alone won't guarantee you Social Security disability benefits. Social Security is a big government agency. They use a complex legal system to decide who deserves benefits, and you can only win benefits if you meet their strict definition of "disabled."

What does being disabled mean?

Under Social Security rules, you're only considered disabled if a medical condition or injury is expected to keep you from working for at least 12 months. The disability can be a physical condition, a mental condition, or a combination of problems.

If you're unable to work, it's important that you schedule regular medical appointments and gather enough documentation to prove your case to Social Security.

In general, Social Security considers you disabled if:

  • You cannot do work that you did before
  • They decide that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.

Social Security has a Five Step Process to determine whether you're disabled.
