physical impairment, or if you suffer from a
mental disorder, you may not be able to return to work. If this is the case, you may be
Social Security disability benefits. These benefits are available for an employee who has worked
long enough for an employer that offered coverage and who had been working
recently in covered employment prior to the disability.
Spouses of disabled workers may be eligible for benefits, as well, if they
have at least one child under the age of 16 or a disabled child in their
care, or if they are at least 62 years old. This also applies to a divorced
spouse if the marriage lasted at least 10 years. In addition, children
of disabled workers can receive benefits if they are a minor or a high
school student under the age of 19.
