How does social security define what is a disability?

A disability under Social Security’s rules is based on a worker’s inability to work. The SSA considers you unable to work if:

  1. You are unable to perform your previous job function.
  2. Your medical condition does not permit you to adjust to other work.
  3. Your disability is expected to last at least a year or result in death.
