Winston-Salem Social Security Disability Lawyer
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has two programs for providing benefits for those who are unable to work: Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). As a general rule, you should sign up for both programs.
Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI) are benefits for people who have earned enough work credits by working and paying Medicare and Social Security taxes. The general rule to determine eligibility for SSDI benefits is whether you worked five out of the last ten years, earning a minimum amount as set forth by the Social Security Administration. You should be eligible if the answer is “yes.”
You can also check your eligibility by looking at your annual Social Security earnings statement, sent to you by the Social Security Administration. Your prior earnings will determine the benefit amount.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are benefits intended for people with less work history, children, or non-payment into the system. This is a needs-based program. Benefits are affected by the financial assets, household income, or other benefits/income received. It should be noted that there are limits to household income/assets. Exceeding the limits could potentially cause a medically disabled person to be unable to qualify for benefits.
