The Social Security Administration has a very strict definition of disability. 

To be found disabled:

• You must be unable to do any substantial work because of your medical condition(s); and

• Your medical condition(s) must have lasted, or be expected to last, at least 1 year, or be expected to result in your death.


Social Security pays disability benefits under two programs:

• Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for insured workers, their disabled surviving spouses, and children (disabled before age 22) of disabled, retired, or deceased workers.

• Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for people with little or no income and resources.
