The Social Security Administration has requirements regarding a minimum time period that you must be disabled. The Social Security Administration requires that you must be disabled for at least 12 months.
However, this does not mean that you may not apply for disability before you are disabled for at least 12 months. It simply must be foreseeable that you will be disabled for at least 12 months.
These are often complicated cases for Social Security, as certain severe impairments may often heal within a one-year time period. If it is not foreseeable that you will be disabled for at least 12 months, you will likely not be considered disabled.
