Yes, there is a 12 month disability period required before you can be granted SSD or SSI benefits; however, you do not have to wait for that year to elapse to apply for benefits. You do need to prove that you will be disabled from working for a minimum of one year.
Do I need to be disabled for a certain period before I can qualify for SSD/SSI benefits?
