Social Security Disability Benefits

Social Security - Disability Benefits

Disability benefits are payable at any age to people who have earned enough Social Security credits and who have a severe physical or mental impairment that is expected to prevent them from doing "substantial" work for a year or more or have a condition which is expected to result in death.

Eligibility:

If a worker is eligible for disability benefits, other members of their family might receive benefits, too. These family members include all of the following:

  • Spouses caring for the worker’s children under age 16
  • Spouses over 62 years
  • Unmarried sons/daughters under 18 or under 19 but still in school
  • Disabled sons/daughters of any age if the child was disabled before age 22
  • Spouses who are widows(ers) injured in the attack but do not have enough Social Security credits to receive benefits, you may qualify for benefits on your deceased spouses' records
  • Ex-spouses of workers might be eligible

Benefits:

Benefits are dependent upon amount of worker’s earned Social Security credit.

The disability program includes incentives to smooth the transition back into the workforce, including continuation of benefits and health care coverage while a person attempts to work.

Deadline:
