Social Security Disability
When referencing Social Security Disability benefits, there are two programs overseen by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
These two programs are Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income Program (SSI).
While both programs use similar standards for establishing “disability” and provide a certain amount of income replacement to disabled individuals, they differ in several areas, but the primary difference is eligibility. In order to be eligible for SSDI, a person will have to prove that they are disabled, as well as that they’ve worked and contributed to the Social Security system for a certain period of time before claiming disability. When it comes to SSI, eligibility does not depend on contribution requirements, but instead, on being disabled, and having low income and few resources.
Across the United States many people rely on SSDI or SSI benefits, while others are turned down and deemed ineligible.
