A Primer on Social Security Disability Law

What kinds of benefits are there?

There are several kinds of disability benefits for which a person can be eligible. Depending on the facts, a person may be entitled to one of these benefits, both, or, unfortunately, none. The medical rules are the same for all categories, you must be just as disabled to qualify for one as for another. The non-medical requirements are different for each category. This white paper reviews the different disability benefits, and discusses how Social Security defines and determines disability.
