To get DSP, you need to meet either:
- manifest medical rules
- general medical rules.
If you don’t meet the manifest medical rules, you may meet the general medical rules.
Not everyone with disability or a medical condition can get DSP.
If you don’t meet either the manifest or general medical rules, you’re not medically eligible. This means you can’t get DSP.
You may be able to get other payments, if you can’t get DSP.
