What you need to know about SSD and SSI
Social Security Disability (SSD or SSDI) pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are insured — you must have worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes, which fund this program. A person who receives SSD is automatically enrolled in Medicare after receiving 24 months of benefits.
Social Security Income (SSI) pays you benefits based on financial need, whether or not you have worked. SSI is a federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues — not Social Security taxes. A person who is eligible to receive SSI may qualify for Medicare without a waiting period.
The Complexities of Social Security Disability Claims
Disability claims can be complex and require extensive medical evidence. The SSA uses a five-step process to determine eligibility, including evaluating your work history, medical evidence, and ability to perform work-related activities. In addition, the SSA has strict rules and regulations that must be followed when submitting a disability claim. Failure to follow these rules can result in a denial of benefits.
