Legal Codes – Excerpts of Actual Law
Government Code § 9373“Disability,” “disabled” or “incapacitated” means, with respect to qualification for a survivor allowance, inability to engage in any substantial gainful occupation by reason of any physical or mental impairment which is determined on the basis of competent medical opinion secured by the board, to be of permanent or extended and uncertain duration.
You are permanently and totally disabled if you cannot engage in any substantial gainful activity because of your physical or mental condition. A physician must certify that the condition has lasted or can be expected to last continuously for 12 months or more, or that the condition can be expected to result in death. See Physician’s statement, later. IRS Publication 524
