Eligibility for Compensation Under the Security Disability Insurance Program
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) 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 and have a disability which meets the medical criteria.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) pays benefits based on financial need and disability.
What is a Social Security Disability
"Disability" under Social Security Disability Insurance program is based on your inability to work. The SSA considers a person is disabled under Social Security rules if:
- You cannot do 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 result in death.
