Social Security: Benefits for People Living with AIDS/HIV

Posted Date: January 31st, 2014 | Categories: Social Security Disability

If you have HIV/AIDS and cannot work, you may qualify for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. Your disability must be expected to last at least a year or end in death, and must be serious enough to prevent you from doing substantial gainful work. The amount of earnings we consider substantial and gainful changes each year. For the current figure, refer to the annual Update (Publication No. 05-10003).  If your child has HIV/AIDS, he or she may be able to get Supplemental Security Income (SSI) if your household income is low enough.
