What Is Social Security Disability?

Social Security Disability Insurance is a federal program for workers who become unable to work. The program is funded by the “FICA” tax paid by employers and withheld from workers’ paychecks. If you have a family, you may also be entitled to additional benefits.

Eligibility depends on three factors. First, you must be disabled, which means you cannot perform the kind of work you did before you stopped working. Second, your disability must last or be expected to last at least 12 months. Third, you must prove that you cannot perform other work because of your disability.

Here is a partial list of conditions that can make you or someone you know eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. This is not a complete list of conditions.
