Understanding Applying for SSDI and SSI Benefits
SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplementary Security Income) are the two main programs available for disabled citizens who can no longer work. The SSDI program is based on earned benefits that you, a spouse or a disabled parent may qualify for. Your total hours previously worked and the amount of earnings paid to social security is a rough estimate of the benefits you could receive.
SSI benefits, on the other hand, are based on financial need rather than work experience. Applicants with the most success when applying for SSI are blind, disabled or 65 and older with limited to no income or assets. SSI is best for single applicants as spouses or dependent children are not eligible to receive any provisions.
Two thirds of applicants to SS benefits are denied upon the first submission. Even if your benefits have been approved, benefits can still be later terminated. A social security benefits lawyer will help you collect the necessary proof to show that you truly need SSDI or SSI benefits. When you call The Law Offices of Daniel S. Draper, our social security attorneys can help you sort through the appeals process, assess your income and prepare for application.
