How To Qualify For Social Security Disability Benefits
SSA offers Disability Insurance Benefits for medical disability for former workers with sufficient reported earnings history (quarters of coverage).
To be eligible and have sufficient earnings, this means having at least 40 Social Security Credits - paid into Social Security, 5 out of the last 10 years. The amount needed for a credit in 2023 is $1,640; you can only earn a maximum of 4 credits per year. Therefore, when you've earned $6,560 you've earned your 4 credits for the year.
If you have reduced your work hours or stopped working completely due to a medical impairment and would like to know if you qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits, call The Law Office of Malyuk McDaniel Kasper to schedule an appointment to review your disability options. 330.929.9700
