Understanding The Difference Between SSDI And SSI
As a Social Security disability law firm, we encounter many clients who ask us about the difference between Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). We have provided a brief outline of SSDI and SSI benefits below.
For additional information about SSI or SSDI, contact an attorney at our firm. We have offices located throughout Alabama including Anniston, Albertville, Birmingham, Cullman, Decatur, Florence, Gadsden, Huntsville, Montgomery, Talladega and Tuscaloosa.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
SSDI is for people who do not work or who have severely limited work capacity. People eligible for SSDI will typically have a physical disability or mental disability that limits their ability to work.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
SSI is for people who work but have limited income and limited resources. To be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income, a person must not have resources that exceed $2,000; there are a few exceptions including a home and car of limited value.
How Do I Know Which Is Right for me?
Knowing which benefits to apply for can be a difficult decision. You don’t have to make that decision on your own. Let our experienced SSDI/SSI attorneys provide you with the information necessary to make an informed decision.
We are pleased to offer a free consultation to discuss your legal needs. At your consultation, you will meet with an attorney who will ask questions about your situation to determine the best course of action. If you decide to retain our firm for your case, we can assist with initial applications and appeals if necessary.
