Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is designed to provide for those who are disabled, either physically or mentally, and unable to work. In order to be eligible for SSDI, you must have paid into Social Security through your wages as it is a payroll tax-funded program. SSDI can be collected on a temporary or permanent basis depending on the type of disability. Those who are eligible for SSDI often also qualify for SSI.


Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is also run by the Social Security office. However, it is not funded through the same payroll taxes. Instead, SSI is funded through general federal tax revenues, so those who collect are not required to have paid into Social Security. SSI is an income supplement program designed to help those who are aged, blind, or disabled, and have little to no income. Those who are eligible for SSI, may or may not qualify for SSDI.
