What disorders qualify for SSI and/or SSDI?

In order to qualify for SSDI, you must have a “disability,” as defined by the Social Security Administration, and you must have worked at a job that is covered by social security. According to the SSA, you have acquired an SSDI-covered disability if:

  • You can’t complete work you used to be able to
  • You cannot adjust to working around your new disability
  • Your disability is on an official list of disabling conditions

To qualify for SSI, you must be of age 65 or older, blind, or disabled. You must also meet certain requirements regarding citizenship, lack of income, and lack of available resources.
