Are you eligible for Social Security Disability?

To qualify for Social Security disability, you must have a permanent conditions that prevents you from working. This condition must have lasted or be expected to last at least 12 months. To be approved for disability, your medical impairment must be supported by documentation from your treating doctors and hospitals. Additionally, you must not earn or be able to earn more than $1000 per month due to your conditions.

Furthermore the Administration will consider your age, education, and past relevant work when deciding whether you will be found disabled. The test is not whether or not you are able to go back to your old job or whether you are unable to find a new job. But rather disability is determined by considering your age, education, and past relevant work experience.

What is the difference between Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits & Social Security Income?

(SSDIB) – This is known as Title II Social Security Disability Benefits. This program benefits people who have a severe medical problem which will prevent them from working for one year or more. Based on their earnings record and work history. Additionally, it provides benefits for their children.

(SSI) – This is known as Title XVI Supplemental Security Income. This program provides benefits for people who have severe medical problems which will keep them from working for one year or more. These individuals do not have a sufficient work history and/or who have not paid enough quarters into Social Security. Benefits are also based upon assets and household income.

How does Workers’ Compensation or VA Disability qualify me for Social Security disability?

The disability findings of Workers compensation and VA do not necessarily qualify you for disability benefits. The Veteran’s Administrations and state worker’s compensation programs define disability in different ways. The Social Security Administration will make its own determination of whether you are disabled based on its rules and regulations.
