If you are disabled from performing substantial employment, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
Under the law, “disability” means the “inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months or result in death.”
In other words, you may qualify if:
SUPPLEMENTAL SECURITY INCOME BENEFITS (SSI)
Supplemental Security Income Benefits (SSI) benefits are paid to people who are both poor and disabled. In addition, SSI children’s disability benefits are paid to children 18 years old and younger who are disabled and whose parents or guardians are poor.
SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFITS (SSD)
Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) are paid to disabled people who have reasonably stable work histories. Generally, SSD is available if you have been employed five out of the last ten years.
