Many individuals are concerned about whether they will qualify for Social Security Disability. While there is no definitive list of qualifying disabilities, there is a list of impairments that affect employment. Each disability is analyzed on an individual basis. If you have a qualifying medical condition, you may be able to obtain one of the following:
- Social Security Disability: If you are an individual with a qualifying physical or mental medical condition that prevents you from working for 12 months or longer, you may qualify for SSD. Additionally, in order to qualify, you must have worked for a period of time. For more information about whether you qualify for SSDI contact our attorneys.
- Supplemental Security Income: This type of assistance is based on financial need rather than on work history. If you lack a work history, or your work history does not meet SSD requirements, and you have a qualifying disability, you may be able to obtain SSI.
