Are You Eligible For SSD?

  • The individual must have paid enough FICA taxes through the Social Security system over the course of his or her working years.
  • The individual's disability must meet the Social Security Administration's definition of disability. Generally speaking, the disability must prevent the worker from working for a year or more, or the disability/injury must be expected to result in death.
