Social Security manages two disability benefits programs: Social Security Disability, or SSD (a part of Social Security's Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance--OASDI), and Supplemental Security Income, or SSI (which is not paid out of Social Security taxes or the Social Security trust fund). Both programs use the same definition of disability: the inability to work at a full-time job for at least a year due to a serious medical condition. The key to getting approved for disability benefits is to have the proper documentation from your doctor about your physical and mental limitations along with supporting clinical or laboratory test results.
