Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federal insurance program by the United States government that is funded through our payroll taxes. The program is managed by the Social Security Administration and is designed to provide supplemental income to people who become physically restricted from working. SSDI is different from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) in that it does not depend on the income of the disabled individual receiving it.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a United States government program that provides stipends to low-income people who are either 65 or older, blind, or disabled. As mentioned previously, one of the requirements to be approved for SSI is that your income and resources are within certain limits.
