How You Qualify For Social Security Disability Benefits

There are many people who do not understand how the US Social Security Administration determines whether a person with a disability is eligible for social security disability benefits.

In brief:

To qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must first have worked in jobs covered by Social Security. Then you must have a medical condition that meets Social Security's definition of disability. In general, we pay monthly cash benefits to people who are unable to work for a year or more because of a disability.

Benefits usually continue until you are able to work again on a regular basis. There are also a number of special rules, called "work incentives," that provide continued benefits and health care coverage to help you make the transition back to work.

You can learn more and read through all the details here.

Keep in mind that there are always special situations like the following:

•If You Are Blind Or Have Low Vision,
•If You Are The Worker's Widow Or Widower,
•Benefits For A Disabled Child,
•Disability Benefits For Wounded Warriors
