Pertinent information about Social Security disability

A person as young as 18 can file for Social Security disability benefits if he or she is suddenly unable to work because of a disability or illness.

At least 10,000 Social Security disability applications are filed in the United States every year by people with a qualifying medical condition. That is, a medical condition expected to last for at least a year or result in death, according to the Social Security Administration. People whose claims have been rejected may not apply for Social Security benefits for at least another 60 days after the agency rejects their application. If you need your application processed immediately, you may want to list level impairments in your application.
