According to the Social Security Administration, if you have an injury or medical condition that is expected to last for 1 year or longer and is preventing you from work, you are likely to qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Disabled children are also eligible for such SSD benefits if they have a physical or mental condition that is seriously limiting their activities and is expected to last at least a year. 
Verbal and written evidence that proves the nature and extent of your disability are required to make a claim for benefits, which must also be filed with the federal government. If you have received word from the government that they found you to be unqualified for Social Security benefits, you have the right to appeal that decision.
