SSDI EvaluationDisability Personal Story

SSDI Guidelines by Disability

We get what you're going through.

To qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), you must have worked and paid into the program (payroll taxes) for five of the last 10 years preceding your disability.

You must also have been disabled before reaching full-retirement age (65-67), and you must meet Social Security's definition of disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) uses a process called sequential evaluation to determine who receives benefits.
