  • Aged: You must be 65 or older to qualify for SSI based on your age.
  • Disabled: Disability is an inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity because of a medically determinable physical or mental impairment expected to result in death, or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.
