I will monitor your case closely from start to finish, and I will diligently update the Social Security Administration about any changes in your health.
Determining SSI and SSDI Eligibility
Supplemental Security Income is a federal program available to those who are blind, disabled or over the age of 65. In order to be eligible, you must be a candidate for welfare and meet certain income requirements. Depending upon your particular circumstances, you may be able to receive SSI in addition to Social Security Disability benefits.
Social Security Disability Insurance provides monthly benefits to persons dealing with a physical injury, mental impairment or illness. To qualify, you must be unable to perform gainful work for at least 12 months. Unlike Supplemental Security Income, SSDI is only available to those who have been previously employed and contributed to the Social Security system.
