Do you have enough "work credits" to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits?

Though being denied at least once for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) is not uncommon, it is important to note that you may have been denied for insufficient "work credits".   The Social Security Administration has strict guidelines when it comes to the number of years you had to have worked and contributed to the system before you could be eligible to receive DIB.  It categorizes your work history into quarters of coverage (QC), commonly referred to as “work credits”. 

In 2008, workers earn 1 quarter of coverage or "work credit" for every $1050 they earn. But here's the catch... you can't earn more than 4 quarters of coverage or work credits per year.
