Social Security Disability benefits are available to individuals who are unable to work due to a physical or mental disability. To qualify for these benefits, applicants must meet certain criteria, including having a disability that is expected to last at least one year or result in death, and having worked long enough and recently enough to be insured under Social Security. The Social Security Administration (SSA) determines eligibility for disability benefits based on an individual’s medical condition, age, education, and work history. The SSA also considers whether an individual can adjust to other work, given his or her medical condition, age, education, and work experience. If an individual is found to be disabled, he or she may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSDI is a monthly benefit paid to individuals who have worked and paid Social Security taxes, while SSI is a monthly benefit paid to individuals who have limited income and resources. In addition to monthly benefits, individuals may also be eligible for Medicare or Medicaid coverage. The SSA also provides work incentives and other services to help individuals with disabilities return to work.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides two types of disability benefits: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). To qualify for either program, you must meet certain criteria. SSDI is available to individuals who have worked and paid Social Security taxes for a certain number of years. To qualify for SSI, you must have limited income and resources. To determine your eligibility for either program, you must complete an application and provide medical evidence of your disability.
