Basic Information on Social Security Disability Benefits

Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they are suffering from a medical condition that is expected to last for at least one year, or result in death. While there are other programs such as workers' compensation that give money to people with a short-term disability, Social Security does not do this.

In order for Social Security Administration to approve your benefits, you must have a medical condition that significantly limits your ability to do basic activities such as walk, sit, and remember for at least one year.

The SSA has a List of Impairments that describes a list of medical conditions that are so severe, that if you are diagnosed with any of these conditions, it means that you are automatically considered disabled under the law.

Some of the conditions on the List of Impairments include:

  • Amputation
  • Chronic heart failure
  • Heart transplant
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Lymphoma
  • Leukemia
  • Hearing loss
  • Liver transplant
  • Epilepsy
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Asthma

Benefits for Family Members

If the SSA decides that you are disabled, certain members of your family may also qualify for benefits. These include your spouse if he or she is at least 62; your spouse if they are caring for a child that is under 16 or disabled; a child under the age of 18, or under 19 but attending secondary school full time, or; an unmarried disabled child who is 18 or older, but became disabled before the age of 22.
