Social Security Disability

The Social Security system provides a monthly disability check to certain individuals who have worked long enough under the Social Security system and are totally disabled as per the definition in the Social Security Act. The disability must last or be expected to last at least 12 months or to result in death.

The Social Security Act defines "disability" as "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.

You must be able to prove that you are unable to perform substantial gainful work activity that exists in significant numbers in the economy. Social Security will consider all of your health problems, your age, education and work experience to arrive at their decision. Each case is determined on an individual basis. In general, the burden is on you to prove that you cannot perform any of the jobs you've had in the last 15 years. If you can prove that, the burden then shifts to Social Security to prove or determine if you can perform any other work.
