What Is Social Security Disability Insurance?

When you become unable to work, you may qualify to receive SSD. This federal program assists people coping with an inability to return to work because of an injury or illness.

In order to qualify for SSD, you must prove that:

  • You suffer from a condition that causes you to be unable to work.
  • That condition is expected to last at least a year, or result in your death.
  • You have paid sufficient money into the Social Security system to be eligible.

The Requirements For Receiving Supplemental Security Income

People who are disabled or blind, meet specified income requirements, live in certain living arrangements, or fulfill other criteria may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Unlike SSD, SSI is needs-based. Even if you have not worked in a long time, you may qualify for these benefits if you are unable to work due to your medical conditions.
