Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements for SSDI?

 

The qualifications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are more rigorous than those for SSI.  To qualify for SSDI benefits, you must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Worked in a job covered by Social Security

  • Worked in that job for 5 of the past 10 years

  • Have a medical condition that prevents you from working and renders you disabled (according to SSA’s definition of “disabled”)

The most common factor that disqualifies SSDI applicants is not having worked five of the last ten years.  However, even if you do not meet the Social Security’s requirements for SSDI benefits, you may still be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
