What is the difference between SSI and SSDI?
Both Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are programs that pay monthly benefits to people with disabilities. The main difference between SSI and SSDI is that SSI has no work-related requirements whereas SSDI is an earned benefit that has work requirements to qualify. SSDI is a financial lifeline for those who, due to disability, cannot work.
Do I qualify for Social Security Disability benefits?
An easy way to determine if you qualify for social security disability benefits is to schedule a free consultation with a social security disability attorney. They will assess your situation and answer questions. Once you have a plan for moving forward, your legal team will help guide you through the application process.
Do I need an attorney to file for Social Security Disability benefits?
The short answer is “no.” But you may want to consider one. The Social Security Disability system is notorious for its complex regulations and legal jargon. A lawyer understands its intricacies, meaning they will look out for what is best for you at every stage of the matter — advocating on your behalf, keeping track of deadlines, and ensuring your case does not linger in bureaucratic limbo.
