When you can’t work and haven’t paid enough in taxes into the Social Security system, you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI is a federal program designed to pay monthly benefits to you if you’re disabled, blind or over the age of 65 and have limited income and resources. Children with disabilities may also qualify for SSI.

Unlike Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, SSI benefits are not based on your work history. The funding for SSI comes from general tax revenues – not from the Social Security taxes taken out of your paycheck.

If you qualify for SSI, you’ll most likely qualify for Medicaid and food assistance, too. Medicaid will help you pay for hospital stays, doctors’ bills, prescriptions and other health costs.

Our attorneys can help you apply for SSI benefits or appeal if you were denied.

We can also help you with SSD benefits.

Differences Between SSD and SSI

Social Security Disability (SSD) is for you if you suffer with a disability and can no longer work. You may qualify for SSD if you’ve worked long enough and paid enough Social Security taxes from your wages while you worked.

If you haven’t paid enough money into the Social Security system to qualify for benefits, you may still be eligible to receive SSI. The government will review your income and determine what resources are available to you.

Let our disability attorneys help you apply for SSD and/or SSI benefits. We can also help you appeal if you were denied. If you have questions about SSD or SSI benefits, call us or fill out our contact form.
