The Social Security Administration provides U.S. workers with a social safety net when workers have been injured or develop an illness or medical condition that renders them no longer able to work; it does so through Social Security disability benefits. Social Security disability is a federal program that is designed to provide financial support to individuals who can no longer work. A worker who has paid into the Social Security tax system are qualified to seek Social Security disability benefits under the Social Security disability insurance program, if the worker has a qualifying disability, medical condition or illness that prevents him or her from earning an income.
In order to seek Social Security disability benefits, an individual with a disability, medical condition or illness that prevents him or her from working can apply for these benefits through the Social Security Administration. Applications for Social Security disability benefits through the Social Security disability insurance program can be completed either online, by telephone, or by visiting a local Social Security field office in person.
The Social Security Administration, by way of Disability Determination Services, which is a state agency operated by the Arizona Department of Economic Security, will review the completed application and all of the additional documentation submitted with the application (i.e., medical evidence of the disability, medical condition or illness), and determine if the individual is eligible for benefits. Eligibility is based on:
