Am I Eligible for Disability Benefits?
Social Security eligibility requirements for disability benefits depends on the five-step evaluation process used by the Social Security Administration (SSA), which considers the severity of your impairment and your ability to work.
Considering these five questions before you apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can help you determine if you’re eligible:
- How severe is your medical condition?
- Is your condition included on the SSA’s Listing of Impairments?
