Social Security requires that you be totally disabled with a condition that will last or be expected to last at least 12 months or end in death. Social Security pays only for a total disability. No benefits are payable for a partial disability or for short-term disability.
Social Security considers
you disabled if:
- You cannot do work that you did before.
- Your condition significantly limits your ability to do basic tasks such as lifting, standing, walking, sitting, and remembering.
- You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s).
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least 12 months (1 year) or to result in death.
In 2023 if your average monthly earned income is more than $1470, which is the Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) limit, you are not disabled under Social Security’s Guidelines.
