FAQ: What’s the Social Security Administration’s Definition of “Disability”?

Definition of Disability in Social Security ClaimsThe definition of disability for Social Security purposes is not the same that you’ll find in Webster’s dictionary. The Social Security Administration defines “disability” as the “inability of claimants to engage in any substantial, gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical and mental impairment and can be expected to last for a continuous period of twelve months or more or results in death.”

What a complicated definition. If you don’t understand that definition, you very well may lose your claim for Social Security Disability benefits.
