You can definitely apply or and be awarded SSDI as long as you are able to prove that your disability makes you unable to perfrom your job, and unable to perform at any other job for that matter.

True, but only to a point. You must also

1. Be both "fully" and "disability" insured through Social Security to be benefit eligible. This is accomplished through payroll taxation (FICA) over a period of years.

2. You must have a disability that will either (1) last at least 12 months, or (2) result in your death; and,

3. You must be unable to work at pretty much any gainful occupation.

Oh yeah- don't forget about the 5-month waiting period before benefits will be awarded (payable on month 6).

THEN... you MIGHT get your SSDI benefits. Still, good luck on that one!
