Can i be refused a job because of a previous disability? Help!

  1. 0 3 years ago I hurt my leg and was encouraged to file for ss disability which I was granted. I am now seeking employment for a trial work period. I had 2 interviews and was offered the job contingent on passing the pre-employment physical. Well I went today for the physical but the doc wasn't there however I filled out the medical history form and was kind of dumbstruck when one of the questions asked if I ever received payments for disability I didn't want to lie so I said yes, now I'm nervous .....why would they need to know that? Could they rescind their offer because I have received it? I'm worried I won't get the job because of my disability :-(
