How does Social Security define “disability?”

 

Social Security has a very strict definition of “disability.” To be considered disabled in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Social Security Administration (SSA), you must meet the following criteria:

    • You cannot perform your previous occupation

    • You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s)

    • Your medical condition(s) must last or be expected to last for at least one year and/or to result in death
