Applying for Social Security disability benefits can be a complicated and time-consuming process. Your local Bessemer disability office can provide information about SSDI disability benefits.

Bessemer Social Security Disability Requirements

To qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must have worked in a career covered by the SSA. Then you must have a medical condition that meets Social Security’s definition of disability. The Social Security Administration (SSA) pays monthly benefits to people who are unable to work for a year or more because of a qualifying disability.

SSDI Work Requirements

In addition to meeting the SSA definition of disability, you must have worked long enough and recently enough to qualify for disability benefits. Social Security work credits are based on your total yearly wages or self-employment income. You can earn up to four credits each year.

The amount needed for work credit changes from year to year. In 2019, for example, you earn one credit for each $1,360 in wages or self-employment income. When you’ve earned $5,440, you’ve earned your four credits for the year.

The number of work credits you need to qualify for SSA disability benefits depends on your age when you become disabled. Generally, you need 40 credits, 20 of which were earned in the last 10 years ending with the year you become disabled. However, younger workers may qualify with fewer credits.
