Do I Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits?
Several factors determine whether you are eligible to receive Social Security disability benefits discussed below it is important to review these criteria before filing your application for benefits. 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 consider you disabled under Social Security rules if:
- You cannot do the work that you did before because of your medical condition(s).
- We determine that your medical condition(s) is of long duration or expected to result in death.
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.
To protect blind or disabled children, we have special rules that allow payment of benefits on the earnings record of a parent who is receiving or eligible to receive Social Security retirement or disability benefits, or Medicare.
A child may also qualify for benefits if the parent is deceased
Special rules apply to children under age 18 who have never married and are disabled. If you are younger than age 18 and became disabled before age 22, we consider your disability to begin on the date your parent(s) became entitled to retirement or disability benefits, or Medicare. If you are age 18 or older, we use the date you became disabled.
