COMPLETE DEFINITION OF DISABILITY UNDER SOCIAL SECURITY
The parameter of disability under the social security is very different than the other programs. Social Security does not pay for any partial disability or for short-term disability, this is only paid for total disabled claimants. Under social security, disability is based on claimant’s inability to work. The authority of SSD which is Social Security Administration considers the claimant is disabled under social security rules if:
- The claimant is not able to do work that he did before.
- Because of medical conditions, the claimant is not in the situation to adjust or to shift to some other work.
- The disability of claimant has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or result in death.
This is a complete definition of disability which is specified in the rules of social security. The reason behind that the SSD does not pay to partial or short term disability is that the authority assumes working families have access to other resources to provide support during periods of short-term disabilities, including Workers’ Compensation, insurance, savings, and investments.
Suffering from injury or illness that prevent from doing any work, affecting someone’s life negatively, it is important to check into receiving disability benefit and you might be eligible for SSD benefits.
