TYPES OF DISABILITY BENEFITS

Disability Insurance Benefits and Supplemental Security Income are disability programs and are the largest of several Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities. While these two programs are different in many ways, both are handled by the Social Security Administration (SSA) and only individuals who have a disability and meet medical and non-medical criteria can qualify for benefits under either program.

 

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI or DIB) pays benefits to you if you are "insured," meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes on past earnings.

 

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based program intended for low income individuals who are disabled. To qualify, you cannot exceed the resource limit set by the SSA. The resource limit is $2000 for single individuals or $3000 for a couple.

 

When you apply for either program, SSA will collect medical and other information from you and make a decision about whether or not you meet Social Security’s definition of “disabled.”
