Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
SSD is for people who have a work history. In order to qualify for SSD, a person must have the required number of work credits. Generally, this means working full-time for at least five of the ten years before the illness or injury occurred. You earn work credits for each quarter you work, up to four credits a year.
The rest of the requirements are identical for SSD and SSI claims. You must have an illness or injury that is medically determinable that prevents you from working full time that has or will last for at least 12 months or will end in death.
