Choose a Lawyer Who Can Fight for the Benefits You Deserve
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a program designed to provide financial support to disabled people who struggle to meet basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter. For many people injured in accidents or living with degenerative illnesses, SSI provides invaluable financial support.
SSI vs. SSD: Which one do you qualify for?
To qualify for Social Security Disability, you need to have worked for a long enough time in a job covered by Social Security to pay into the system via payroll taxes. SSI benefits are available to people who have not worked in jobs covered by Social Security, or who have worked only briefly.
Some examples of people who may qualify for SSI include:
- Agricultural workers
- Self-employed people
- Business owners
- Disabled children
Proving that you qualify for SSI can be difficult. You need to meet certain living requirements, have a demonstrable financial need, meet the SSA's definition of disability and show that your work history does not qualify you for SSD.
