ONLY OLDER PEOPLE NEED DISABILITY
A debilitating injury or condition can happen to anyone, regardless of their age or circumstances. If you are physically or mentally incapable, you have the right to pursue disability benefits to provide you with stability.
YOU HAVE TO BE DISABLED FOR A YEAR
If your doctor advises you that your injury or illness may prevent you from working and earning an income for 12 months or longer, you may be eligible to receive SSD benefits. You can begin the filing process immediately.
YOU CAN’T WORK AND RECEIVE BENEFITS
You are allowed to work at a job and earn income while still drawing Social Security disability benefits, as long as your monthly income without withholdings is $1,260 or less (or $2,110 or less per month if you are blind).
