In tax terms, you’re considered permanently and totally disabled if both of these criteria apply during the tax year:
- You can’t participate in a significant amount of productive activities because of your physical or mental condition.
- You can check out the chart offered by Social Security Administration to see if you’re within the limits.
- A qualified physician determines that your condition either:
- lasted or can be expected to last continuously for at least a year, or
- can be deemed as life threatening
