Social Security Disability is insurance that protects you and your family if you become unable to work before retirement age. But, unfortunately, this coverage can run out. In general, you must have worked five of the last ten years to be insured for Social Security Disability. If you wait too long after you stop working to apply for disability you may no longer be insured.
