The ABCs of Disability Benefits: Your Guide to SSDI & SSI in 2024
What happens when you’re not able to work for an extended period of time due to a medical condition? What about a child dealing with an issue that impairs her/his day-to-day function? Social Security may be able to help! The Social Security Administration oversees two disability-centric initiatives: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Both programs aim to furnish financial aid to those contending with disabilities, but each has its own criteria for work requirements and financial eligibility. While SSDI and SSI diverge in their operational nuances, eligibility hinges on meeting stringent criteria pertaining to the nature and extent of the disability, coupled with limitations on income and resources. During this session, participants will learn more about SSDI and SSI as well as gain information and resources to help navigate the complex landscape of disability benefits.
