What Is Social Security Disability Income And Supplemental Security Income?
Social Security Disability Income And Supplemental Security Income
The Social Security and Supplemental Security Disability Income scheme are the biggest of a few Federal projects that help individuals with disabilities. Although these two programs are dissimilar in various ways, both programs are administered by the Social Security Administration. Only persons who have a disability and meet all the medical conditions may qualify for the advantages under either program.
Suppose you are "insured" under the Social Security Disability Insurance program. In that case, it pays benefits to you and specific members of your family, that means that you have performed long enough and paid all the Social Security Taxes. In comparison, Supplemental Security Income pays benefits based on financial needs.
