Social Security Disability

The Social Security system provides a monthly disability check to certain individuals who have worked long enough under the Social Security system and are totally disabled as per the definition in the Social Security Act. The disability must last or be expected to last at least 12 months or to result in death.

The Social Security Act defines "disability" as "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.

The formula for calculating a monthly Social Security Disability benefit is rather complicated. Suffice it to say that the monthly benefit is based upon your lifetime earnings covered by the Social Security system. You can obtain an estimate of your disability benefit by requesting a Social Security Statement from your local Social Security office. This will provide you your earnings record as well as an estimate of your disability and retirement benefits. It would also provide you estimates of any additional benefits that your family may be eligible to receive based on your disability.
