In This Section:


Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in Chula Vista is offered by the Federal Government to disabled workers who are unable to perform "substantial gainful activity" (SGA) due to a severe mental or physical health condition which is expected to last for at least 12 continuous months.

Do all disabled workers qualify for SSDI in Chula Vista? No, in fact, you must first meet the non-medical criteria established by the Social Security Administration which states that you must be "insured". To be considered insured, Chula Vista workers must have paid employment taxes and earned 20-40 work credits over the course of their employment working jobs "covered" by Social Security.

How do you know if you have sufficient work credits to qualify for SSDI in Chula Vista?

Will you qualify for SSDI in Chula Vista if you have not paid employment taxes or worked? No, SSDI in Chula Vista is only offered to the insured. The Federal Government does, however, offer another cash assistance program called Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
