The Social Security Act defines disability very strictly.

A person is disabled under the Act if he or she cannot work due to a severe medical condition that has lasted or is expected to last at least one year or result in death. The condition must also prevent the person from doing work he or she did in the past and from adjusting to new work.

The onset of disability is unpredictable and can happen to anyone at any age.

Many serious medical conditions, such as cancer or mental illness, affect both young and elderly people. In fact, 1 out of every 5 Americans lives with a disability. As a result, they may need to rely on the Social Security disability program for income support. Disability benefits provide a critical source of financial support to a person when he or she needs it most.
