Do I have to be permanently disabled to get Social Security disability benefits?

Return to FAQs


You don’t need to be permanently disabled to collect Social Security disability benefits or meet the standards for disability by the Social Security Administration. What’s important is to understand that you have to be unable to work a 40-hour job every week. Ultimately, what happens to most people who get disability is they might even be able to work, but they can’t work eight hours a day, five days a week, every month.
