There are two Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs.
- Social Security Disability Insurance program pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are “insured,” meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. Additionally, Social Security disability benefits must meet medical criteria proving disability under Social Security guidelines to qualify for Title II Disability.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)pays benefits to qualify disability claimants based on financial need.
What is a social security disability?
A person that has a disability and meets the medical criteria may qualify for benefits under the Social Security Disability Insurance program. Social security Disability Insurance programs pay only for those disabled for a year or more meaning they are most likely totally disabled. No benefits are payable for partial disability or for short-term disability.
“Disability” under the Social Security Disability insurance program is based on your inability to work. We consider you disabled under Social Security rules if:
- You cannot perform work that you previously performed;
- You cannot change to other work because of your medical condition; and
- Your disability has lasted or will continue for at least twelve months or results in death.
