Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. The Social Security Web site (www.ssa.gov) is easy to use if you apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). You can call 800-772-1213 or call your local Social Security office. It takes many months to process an application, so it is a good idea to get started quickly.
