What is Social Security Disability? What is SSI?
Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are programs designed to assist disabled people who cannot work. Social Security Disability Insurance is a program for people who can no longer work but have worked previously and paid enough into the system to be covered. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is designed to assist people who haven't worked enough or haven't worked enough recently to be covered for Social Security Disability. There are specific rules and regulations for each program. If you have questions about Social Security Disability, SSI or wonder whether you may be covered under either program contact me.
Do I qualify for benefits?
If you are disabled and unable to work, you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance and/or SSI benefits. Social Security Disability Insurance is designed to cover people who have worked enough to be insured. SSI is designed to cover people who have limited resources and do not qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance. Every person's situation is unique. Contact me to discuss whether you may qualify for benefits.
