The Social Security Administration pays disability benefits to people who cannot work because of a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. You are eligible for disability benefits if you are disabled and unable to work at all before becoming eligible for benefits. If you have not worked enough to qualify for disability benefits, you may be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
