Social Security Disability FAQs

Address Your Questions With a Lawyer

When it comes to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), having all the information you need can make a huge difference in your case. But remember, you don’t have to navigate this legal terrain alone. I’m ready to answer any and all disability law questions you have.  

What are the key requirements to qualify for SSDI benefits? 

You should be of working age, which is between 21 and retirement age (65-67 years old). You also need to have worked at least five out of the last ten years. One of the key requirements is meeting the legal definition of "disabled. " This means that your medical condition prevents you from working for at least 12 months or is expected to result in death. 

How does the Social Security Administration measure disability benefits?

The Social Security Administration measures disability benefits in terms of work credits. Typically, you need to have earned 20 work credits in the last ten years to qualify. The number of work credits required can vary based on your age and how many years you've worked. You can earn up to four credits each year, and the amount needed to earn one credit changes annually. 

What are the rules regarding partial or short-term disability and SSDI benefits?

SSDI benefits are strictly for total disability, not for partial or short-term disabilities. This means that your medical condition must significantly impair your ability to engage in any substantial gainful activity and is expected to last for more than 12 continuous months. Partial or short-term disabilities may qualify for other types of benefits, such as workers' compensation or short-term disability insurance.
