5 Steps to Determine Disability
Social Security Disability versus Supplemental Security Income
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits consist of monthly payments and/or Medicare benefits which provide compensation to those who are totally disabled from performing substantial gainful work of any kind.
Social Security benefits can be obtained through two programs:
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Both SSDI and SSI have the same medical requirements for disability. However, SSDI requires a person to have worked at least 5 of the last 10 years full time. SSI, on the other hand, is based solely on financial need, regardless of prior work history.
