The Social Security Disability Insurance program pays benefits to you if you’ve worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. With this program, workers have to accumulate enough work credits. The amount of credits you have is based on the taxes you paid throughout your career, so it doesn’t take into account how much money you have. Your required number of work credits to receive Social Security Disability Benefits are as follows:
- Ages 23 & Under: 6 Work Credits
- Ages 24-31: 12 Work Credits
- Ages 31 & over: 20 Work Credits in the past 10 years
