    Disability Benefits
    Disability is something most people do not like to think about. But the chances that you will become disabled probably are greater than you realize. Studies show that a 20-year-old worker has a 3-in-10 chance of becoming disabled before reaching full retirement age.

    We pay disability benefits through two programs: the Social Security disability insurance program and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.

    Who can get Social Security disability benefits?
    Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. Federal law requires this very strict definition of disability. While some programs give money to people with partial disability or short-term disability, Social Security does not.
    Certain family members of disabled workers also can receive money from Social Security.

    How do I apply for disability benefits?
    There are two ways that you can apply for disability benefits. You can:
    1. Apply online at www.socialsecurity.gov; or
    2. Call our toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213, to make an appointment to file a disability claim at your local Social Security office or to set up an appointment for someone to take your claim over the telephone. The disability claims interview lasts about one hour. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you may call our toll-free TTY number, 1-800-325-0778, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on business days. If you schedule an appointment, we will send you a Disability Starter Kit to help you get ready for your disability claims interview. The Disability Starter Kit also is available online at www.socialsecurity.gov/disability.
