Q1. Who is eligible for disability benefits from Social Security?

Under Social Security rules, you’re only considered disabled (and eligible for benefits) if a medical condition or injury is expected to keep you from working for at least 12 months. The disability can be a physical condition, a mental condition, or a combination of each.

Q5. How do unemployment benefits affect disability benefits?

Getting both unemployment and Social Security Disability benefits is tricky. That’s because qualifying for unemployment means you’re able to work. Qualifying for disability benefits means you can’t. In certain situations, though, you may be able to get both kinds of benefits.
