Facts About Social Security Disability & Eligibility
The primary qualifications for SSDI benefits are:
- Your illness or injury will prevent you from working for at least 12 months, or is expected to result in death.
- You have worked and paid (FICA) taxes for a total of five (5) out of the last ten (10) years.
- You fit the SSA definition of disabled: you can’t do work you did before AND you can’t adjust to other work due to your medical condition.
