Social Security Disability

The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities.  To be disabled according to the Social Security Administration, your physical and/or mental impairments must be so severe that you cannot perform your past relevant work, and considering your age, education, and work experience, cannot perform any other substantial gainful work  in the national economy.  In addition, your disability must have lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or result death Social Security disability can come in two forms: SSI which stands for Supplemental Security Income and pays benefits based on financial need, and SSDI which stands for Social Security Disability Insurance and pays benefits if you were “insured” as defined by the Social Security Administration.  You may apply for one or both of these benefits depending on your work experience and impairments.
