Social Security Disability
Social Security administers several disability programs, each with different criteria. The most common disability programs are Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (sometimes referred to as “SSD,” “SSDI,” or “DIB,” or “Title II”) and Supplemental Security Income (generally referred to as “SSI” or “Title 16”). An experienced Tri Cities social security attorney like Mr. Hatfield can help you understand what programs are available to you and what can be done to give you your best chance of success in obtaining those benefits.
Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits
Social Security Disability Insurance is a program designed to provide continued income to workers who become unable to continue working due to a physical or mental disability. This program is available to those who have paid into the system through their payroll taxes. The amount of the monthly benefit is based on the amount paid into the system.
If you qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, you will also be eligible for Medicare after you have been receiving disability benefits for two years.
In order to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, you must be under the age of 65 and:
Supplemental Security Income Benefits
Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) is a financial need based program. This means that, in addition to meeting the disability criteria, you must also meet the financial needs criteria. If you are awarded SSI benefits, you will also be eligible to receive Medicaid to help ensure that you are able to get the healthcare treatment you need.
In order to qualify for Supplemental Security Income, you must be under the age of 65 and:
