EITC

"Long Term Disability" refers to an insurance plan through your employer that your employer paid for.  That is considered as "Earned Income".  But Social Security Disability is different, and is NOT "Earned Income".

You need earned income to be able to get EITC. Please see What is Earned Income? and Do I Qualify for the EITC? for details.

 

 

VictorW9  is correct "No, Social Security benefits and Social Security Disability (SSDI) do not count as earned income."  It is income but not earned income.
