The Social Security Administration defines social security disability as a program designed to provide financial support to people who meet the definition of “total disability.” It is not for those with short-term disabilities or workers eligible to receive temporary payments under the state workers’ compensation program. Social security disability is also different from programs for veterans that award payments based on a percentage of disability. The SSA will deny any applicant that it feels is not 100 percent disabled due to an injury or chronic medical condition.
To qualify for social security disability benefits, you must be completely disabled for at least one year (12 months) or have a condition that is expected to result in your death. If you are awarded benefits, you will be subject to future medical exams to determine if you still meet this definition and can, therefore, continue to receive benefits.
