What Does Social Security Provide?

A physical or mental disability or impairment often leaves an individual incapable of working and therefore incapable of earning a living. Social Security offers monthly income benefits and Medicare/Medicaid healthcare benefits to individuals who qualify . However, there are limitations as to whether an individual has SSI or SSD eligibility.

Social Security Disability (SSD or SSDI)

Generally, SSD benefits are available to individuals who have been employed for at least five out of the last ten years. The following are some attributes of Social Security Disability:

  • An monthly income check based on family size and previous income
  • Family benefits may be also obtained for a surviving widow, an adult disabled child, or disabled children
  • If disability is recognized, the individual may seek retro pay for past due benefits from the date of last employment.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

SSI benefits may be available for individuals who have not worked sufficient time within the last ten years. The following are some features of Supplemental Security Income:

  • A maximum monthly income check of $603
  • The individual must have less than $2,000 in resources for eligibility
  • Benefits may also be obtained for a disabled adult or a disabled child if the parent's income is at or close to poverty level (which changes based on the number of children in the family)
  • If disability is recognized, the individual may seek retro pay for past due benefits from the date of filing the initial claim for benefits
