What is Social Security Disability Insurance?

Most legal residents of the United States have a Social Security Number, often referred to as an SSN. When you are paid for working, the federal government deducts taxes from your paycheck and applies them under your individual SSN to national funds and programs (typically listed under “FICA” on your pay stub).

One of these funded programs is known as SSDI, or Social Security Disability Insurance, which is often referred to as “Disability Insurance Benefits,” “DIB,” or “Title II Benefits.” This program provides income to people who are physically or psychologically restricted from performing work on a regular, full-time and continuous basis. In order to be insured and entitled to SSDI benefits, you usually must have worked five years (20 quarters) out of the 10-year period (40 quarters) before you became disabled.

Helpful Resources from the Soloway Law Firm

According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), a typical 20-year-old employee has a 1-in-4 chance of becoming partially or fully disabled before reaching the age where they can fully retire.

What is Social Security Income?

Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, is a benefit available to low-income disabled persons regardless of their employment status during the previous 10 years. In order to receive SSI benefits, your income and resources must measure below certain federally established limits.

If your income and resources are below these limits, then you may be entitled to receive payments under the SSI program. For most recipients, the program pays a federal cash benefit of up to $721 per month for an individual and $1,082 per month for a couple* to help meet the cost of living.
*As of 2014
