Fighting for South Carolina Injury Victims for Over 50 Years

What kinds of disabilities do I have to have in order to qualify for benefits?

Generally speaking, you must be completely disabled in order to get Social Security Disability benefits, which means that you have to be suffering from a condition that keeps you from being able to do any substantial gainful work. Additionally, your disability attorney will advise that you must have paid enough into the Social Security system for a certain length of time. Specifically, individuals will qualify if they have paid into the system for at least 40 quarters, 20 of which should have occurred within the last 10 years prior to you becoming disabled.

Disabilities include (but are not limited to) the following conditions:

  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Back, neck, and joint pain
  • Breathing disorders
  • Finger/Hand/Wrist pain
  • Heart condition
  • Memory loss
  • Migraines
  • Seizures
  • Stroke
  • Vision/Hearing loss
  • Weakness/Fatigue
