Just like having a private short-term or
long-term disability insurance policy, to be covered for Social Security
Disability benefits you need to make sure your premium payments are up to
date. The way you pay your premium for Social Security Disability is by
paying your Social Security taxes through payroll deductions. You can also

As a general rule, in order to be covered by
Social Security Disability you need to have paid taxes at least five of
the 10 years prior to the date you became disabled.
Once you establish you are covered for
benefits, you then need to prove you are “disabled” according to the rules
of the Social Security Administration.
Proving disability to the Social Security
Administration is a complex and often difficult process. The
administration will ask for information from you about your age,
education, prior work experience and restrictions from your physical or
mental conditions that make your ability to work unlikely.
