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.

Yes, there are three parts to Medicare insurance. There is hospital insurance, medical insurance and prescription coverage. The hospital insurance pays part of inpatient hospital bills and certain follow-up care after an admission. This type of coverage is free. The other two types of Medicare are medical insurance and prescription insurance. You are not entitled to these until you have been on disability benefits for two years. They will help pay a portion of doctors' bills and prescriptions. You must pay a monthly premium for this coverage if you decide to enroll in it. The Social Security Administration will provide you a detailed material on this subject.
