What is Social Security Disability Benefits?
Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) are payments made to eligible individuals who cannot work due to injury. There are two types of disability coverage — First, if you have had a pre-existing condition, you qualify for SSD benefits.
Second, you can qualify for SSD if you have sustained a new injury or have an impairment that was not previously covered. These are the same rules, for the most part, as for workers’ compensation benefits.
What are the Types of Workers’ Compensation?
There are two different types of workers’ compensation:
Disability Insurance. This covers a person who cannot work due to an injury or illness. Workers’ Compensation Disability Insurance pays benefits if the injury occurred on the job and you have no other sources of income.

Casualty Insurance. This pays for workers’ compensation if you work under someone else’s name. This is a very narrow group of workers.
To qualify for either of these types of workers’ compensation, you must submit evidence that you were injured on the job. This means you need to have a worker’s compensation number in order to qualify.

Social security law benefits and eligibility
What does the law require?
The benefits available through the act are based on the number of years the claimant has worked, or as a self-employed person, or as a full-time student. The amount of the benefit is calculated according to a percentage of the average earnings during the first three months of employment or self-employment, which is supposed to be minimum wage.
The minimum number of years of work or self-employment for claiming SSS benefits is 15.
Certain professions require longer periods of service.
For instance, in addition to the 15, there are some jobs that only require a 12-month service as prescribed by the SSS.
The employer and the employee each have to provide a one-time enrolment certificate to be valid.
