Social Security Disability includes the following types of benefits:
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
— Provides income to workers with a serious injury or illness that makes them unable to work before the Social Security Retirement age. Applicants must have an illness or injury that has or will keep them out of work for 12 months or longer and be actively seeking medical treatment.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
— A needs-based program that provides income to individuals whose SSDI contributions are too low to qualify for those benefits and who meet the financial eligibility requirements. They must be disabled under the same rules that apply for SSDI.
Disabled Widow or Widower
- Provides income to widows or widowers (age 50 - 60) based on their spouse's earnings record.
Disabled Adult Child
- Provides income to disabled adult based on the earnings of a deceased or retired parent if the disability arose before age 22.
