Hi Samantha,

If you are 4'11" and have no other physical ailments that will cause you to be out 12 months then you will not qualify for SSDI benefits.

Hi There,

If you have no other physical ailments that will cause you to be out of work for at least 12 months, then you will not qualify for Social Security disability benefits.

Hi There,

Your height alone won't qualify you for Social Security disability benefits, you would need to have a condition that the SSA would deem a disability that will force you to be out of work for at least 12 months.

Hi Dee,

If you are simply 4'11" and you have no other disabling conditions that will prohibit you from working for at least 12 months then you will not qualify for SSDI benefits.

Hi There,

You won't be able to get it for your height, you could for your anxiety. You will need to gather as much medical evidence as you can.
