Are There Short-Term Social Security Disability Benefits?

In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, your disability must be expected to last AT LEAST one year

Blocks on table that spell Short Term
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has strict rules to determine if you are considered disabled. One of these rules is that you are expected to be out of work for at least one year. Social Security does NOT offer temporary or short-term disability benefits. They only pay for total disability cases.

Short-Term Disability Insurance

Five states: California, Hawaii, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island, and Puerto Rico currently mandate Short-term Disability Insurance (SDI). If you live outside of these states, your options for SDI include private insurance policies or through your employer. If your disability is work related, you may qualify for Workers’ Compensation.
