Understanding Federal Social Security Law
Social Security benefits are available to those disabled people who are unable to work because of their conditions. Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are a part of a broader federal program intended to provide medical solutions for the U.S.’s most vulnerable and in-need citizens. Those who are retired, disabled or otherwise unable to work for a year or longer because of their health condition are capable of accessing SSD benefits.
The requirements to access SSD benefits include:
- The applicant must have a verifiable medical condition that prevents them from conducting substantial gainful employment/work
- Because of this disability, the applicant can no longer conduct the work that they were once capable of doing
- The disability has resulted in death or has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year
- Because of the disability, the applicant is incapable of adapting to any other type of employment work opportunity
In order to access Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, in addition to fulfilling the above requirements, there must be a history of employment. SSDI benefits can be accessed if the applicant has had Social Security taxes deducted from their payroll for at least 40 work quarters, though 20 of these work quarters can come from the 10 years before the disability arises. Those who do not qualify for SSDI benefits may still be entitled to access disability benefits through the federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. Benefits made available under the SSI are intended for those with minimal assets and income.

However, the reality is that the process can quickly morph into a bureaucratic nightmare that will require the legal assistance of trained and knowledgeable Social Security attorneys.
