For purposes of Social Security Disability benefits, a permanent disability is caused by either disease or injury and makes you unable to work.

The Social Security Administration has a strict definition of permanent disability, and it only pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. Whether or not you are disabled is determined not only by your inability to perform your most recent job, but must also not be able to work at any job considering your age, education level, and experience. Even if your education and work experience would cause you to be hired by a company, does not mean that you are able to perform the job. If you cannot perform at a job primarily because of your injury or disease, you are considered disabled. If your disability lasts, or is expected to last, at least one year, you are considered permanently disabled.

The purpose of Social Security Disability benefits is to provide you financial assistance due to your permanent disability.

You can use your benefits to pay for doctor bills, surgery or other medical treatment, and various living expenses. Disability payments help a lot of people, but they are difficult to acquire. The application process is challenging, and appealing a denial of your claim is harder still. You do not have to work through this system by yourself. If you are permanently disabled, it is very important that you do not wait to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. Waiting can delay much needed benefits and make the entire process more difficult.
