No. The Social Security Administration only pays disability benefits if they determine you have a qualifying condition, are completely disabled, and are expected to remain disabled for at least one year. If you are capable of working or engaging in "substantial gainful activity" (SGA) regardless of whether you receive income for your efforts, you will not be approved for SSDI benefits.

In addition, you -- or, under certain circumstances, a parent or spouse -- have to have made sufficient quarterly contributions to the Social Security fund before you become eligible to Social Security benefits.

Some government programs, such as those for disabled military veterans, may pay a monthly stipend if you are partially disabled or have a non-disabling condition that has been linked to your military service (for example, Vietnam Veterans who have Diabetes and were potentially exposed to Agent Orange automatically qualify for partial disability).

Can you collect social security while out on short term disability at work?

It is possible, however it depends on the particular Short-Term Disability Insurance policy you have. Your disability benefits booklet should be available from the employer. Some group disability policies integrate with Social Security and if you qualify for Social Security benefits, your disability benefits will be decreased by the amount received from SSDI. Individual Disability Insurance plans can be taken and you have a choice of integration with Social Security (cheaper plans) on non-integrated plans which will pay 100% of benefit if you are disabled, regardless if you are receiving Social Security Disability. These individual plans are portable if you change your job.

Merely being disabled does not qualify you for unemployment benefits.

Can you collect disability insurance for an ulcer?

This depends on the type of Disability insurance you have and also how bad the ulcer is. Normally, individual and group Disability insurance requires that you be unable to perform the material duties of your current occupation, in order to qualify and receive any benefits. If the ulcer is preventing you from working in your job, then there is a chance you may qualify for benefits. If it does not affect your ability to work, then you should not expect to receive benefits. If you are counting on Social Security Disability, you should not expect to be paid disability benefits. Social Security is significantly more difficult to qualify for. You must essentially be unable to do any form of work, in order to be considered disabled and eligible for benefits.
