Nonmedical Requirements

Definition - What does Nonmedical Requirements mean?

Nonmedical requirements refer to the non-injury associated requirements that a person needs to prove in order to be eligible to obtain Social Security Disability benefits. Besides various medical requirements, the Social Security Administration is required to determine whether a person has had a job long enough and/or recently enough to qualify for Social Security Disability.

Justipedia explains Nonmedical Requirements

A person pays taxes into Social Security while performing a job. That person receives work credits that establish what is known as the "date last insured." A person generally needs to have worked at least five of the past 10 years to qualify for Social Security benefits. However, if that person does not have enough work credits to establish a "date last insured" or that person has never held a job, they could be entitled to Supplemental Security Income.
