Social Security Law Social Security Disability

Social Security Attorney
Hiring a Social Security attorney is often the only way to obtain all of your Social Security benefits.
American workers may be injured as a result of workplace accidents.  Individuals who suffer from chronic heart or lung problems, AIDS, depression or other medical problems may be eligible for Social Security Disability.  

The resulting Social Security disability benefits can be paid under two programs: the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits program and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits program.

The medical requirements for Social Security Disability payments are the same under both programs for most people.

Eligibility for Social Security Disability insurance is based upon your work history. Eligibility for SSI disability benefit payments is based upon financial need.

There are other differences in the eligibility rules for the two programs; however, the major distinction is that SSDI benefits are available for individuals who have worked in recent years and are now disabled.

Disabled Widow's and Widower's Benefits are paid to individuals who are at least 50 years old and become disabled within a certain amount of time after the death of their husband or wife who has worked under Social Security.

Disabled Adult Child Benefits are paid to the children (disabled before age 22) of persons who are deceased or who are drawing Social Security Disability or Social Security Retirement benefits.

Disabled Widow's or Widower's Benefits and Disabled Adult Child benefits are not affected by whether you are rich or poor. Benefits are determined by a review of a Social Security earnings record.

Supplemental Security Income benefits are paid to individuals who have limited household income and few assets and are disabled. SSI does not consider whether the applicant has worked in the past.

SSI disability benefits determination is different for children, but the benefit calculation is still based upon having a limited household income and few assets.
