Kentucky Social Security disability benefits are paid only to workers who have long-term impairments that prevent or prohibit any gainful employment, regardless of whether or not the disability happened on the job. By law, disability benefits are paid only to workers who are not able to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of a physical or mental impairment that is expected to last at least one year or that is expected to result in death. The injury or condition has to be bad enough that the employee is not only unable to do perform his/her previous work, and is also unable to do any other kind of substantial (gainful) work. Social Security disability benefits usually begin after a 5-month waiting period.
In Kentucky, if you have worked and paid Social Security taxes for five years out of the last 10, and are now totally disabled due to an illness or an injury, you may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
To be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits in Kentucky your condition must be one that is expected to last 12 months or longer or is expected to end in death. You must able to prove to the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you cannot perform your former position or any other type of job now that you are disabled.
