What Is the Difference Between SSDI and SSI?
There are two different systems that provide assistance and help to individuals; however, they have different requirements under the law. While both systems require that the individual applying is considered disabled under the law, there are specific instances when one system is appropriate.
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): This type of assistance requires that you are an individual who has paid into the Social Security system. Therefore, this type of assistance is not something that children are eligible for.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI): This type of assistance is a program that is based on need and disability. It is for individuals who have limited income and assets. This type of program is payable to children with disabilities as well. The government will look at the income and assets of the parents to determine eligibility.
