The Differences Between SSDI And SSI

If a disabling condition has left you unable to work, you may be eligible to receive benefits through the Social Security system to help you maintain a source of income and obtain medical benefits. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are programs that may be beneficial to you.

In our years of experience, we have found that most workers in need of Social Security Disability benefits are not aware of their rights or which program may be able to help them. That is where we come in. Rather than going through the application process, fighting through denials and enduring stress on your own, you can rely on us to guide you down the correct path and maximize your benefits.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

To qualify for SSDI, one must have a disabling condition that prevents work for at least a year, and the condition must be a qualifying condition according to the government's list of impairments. You must also have an employment history and paid enough into the program over the past 10 years to qualify.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Like SSDI, your medical condition must prevent you from working for at least one year, and you must have a qualifying impairment. Unlike SSDI, SSI is a need-based program that takes your income into consideration to determine if you qualify. You do not have to have a prior employment history to qualify for SSI.
