Question

What does "insured status" mean?
Answer

To qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you must have worked and paid into the Social Security system long enough and recently enough to have earned a necessary amount of work credits. The number of work credits you need to be qualified depends upon your age and when you became disabled.

The general rule of thumb is that a worker must have worked under the Social Security system five (5) out of the ten (10) years prior to the onset of disability. There are exceptions to this general rule for individuals 31 years of age or younger and for individuals who have previously been on Social Security Disability benefits. You can find out if you have "insured status" by contacting your local Social Security office.
