Social Security Disability (SSD) v. Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Before getting into your claim, it’s important to understand the difference between SSI and SSD benefits.

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal government program that provides cash assistance for people with little to no income. These beneficiaries must meet additional age and disability requirements.
  • Social Security Disability (SSD) is entirely separate from SSI. SSD benefits are available to disabled Americans who have paid into the Social Security system and are no longer able to work due to injury or disability.

Depending on your situation, you may qualify for one or both of these types of benefits. An experienced Social Security Disability attorney at Bottaro Law can help you determine your benefits eligibility and fight for the benefits you deserve.
