Who May Receive Social Security Benefits?

by Kara Dolan-West | May 19, 2014 | Social Security Benefits

The Social Security System pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. Federal law requires this very strict definition of disability. While some programs give money to people with partial disability or short-term disability, Social Security does not. Certain family members of disabled workers also can receive money from Social Security.
