Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
This is part of the Federal Social Security program that provides monthly disability payments to those younger than full retirement age, unable to engage in substantial employment activities, and have enough quarters of work credit to qualify for benefits.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
This is part of the Social Security Program that provides monthly disability benefits to those who have not worked long enough to qualify for SSDI. The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities.
To qualify for either program, a claimant must prove to the Social Security Administration that they are disabled under the Social Security Administration’s guidelines and rules. Social Security finds a claimant disabled when the claimant proves that they are not capable of performing substantial, gainful employment.
However, determining the Social Security definition of disability, and who should receive benefits, is a complex question that is not always easily answered. This is why you need the assistance of a skilled and knowledgeable Social Security lawyer to advise you as you as your claim is being processed. Social Security denies approximately 70% of the disability applications. Approximately half of these denials are turned into accepted claims after either reconsideration or a hearing.
