To qualify for SSD, you must have worked in jobs covered by Social Security and have a medical condition that meets Social Security’s definition of disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) will review your medical records and other evidence to determine if you are eligible for benefits. If you are approved, you will receive a monthly benefit payment and may be eligible for other benefits, such as Medicare or Medicaid.

Social Security Disability benefits are available to individuals who are unable to work due to a physical or mental disability. To be eligible for these benefits, you must meet certain criteria. First, you must have worked in jobs covered by Social Security for a certain period of time. This period of time is known as the “duration of coverage” and is based on your age when you became disabled. Second, you must have a medical condition that meets the Social Security Administration’s definition of disability. This means that your condition must be severe enough to prevent you from doing any substantial gainful activity. Third, your disability must have lasted, or be expected to last, for at least one year or result in death. Finally, you must be able to provide medical evidence of your disability. This evidence must include medical records, laboratory tests, and statements from your doctor. If you meet all of these criteria, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.
