SSDI  Social Security Disability Insurance & SSI Supplemental Security Income

SSDI Social Security Disability Insurance & SSI Supplemental Security Income

Statewide

SSDI is insurance for people who are disabled and who qualify due to working and paying Social Security taxes. You apply for SSDI at a Social Security Administration office. The SSDI program pays benefits to you and certain family members if you are “insured.” This means that you worked long enough – and recently enough - and paid Social Security taxes on your earnings. The SSI program pays benefits to adults and children who meet our requirements for a qualifying disability and have limited income and resources. SSI is a benefit for people who are disabled and low income without many resources. You apply for SSI at a Social Security Administration office. While these two programs are different, the medical requirements are the same. If you meet the nonmedical requirements, monthly benefits are paid if you have a medical condition expected to last at least one year or result in death.
