Many people hold back on filing for Social Security because they are unsure they meet
the requirements. Learn more about what the requirements for being accepted for
Social Security are.
This needs to be taken into consideration when applying.
The general requirements for SSD are:
• You are unable to do the work you did before the disability
• You have worked and have paid into Social Security, and have earned the proper
amount of work credits
• The Social Security Administration has made the determination that you cannot adjust
to other forms of work because of your condition
• Your disability has lasted at least one consecutive year, or is expected to result in
at least on year of debilitation or death
If you have a child with a disability, once they turn 18, they are eligible for benefits of their own. Your child can receive benefits if the following conditions apply:
• The impairment causing disability must have been present before age 22
• All disability definitions for adults must be met
• One parent must be disabled, deceased, or retired
