Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits
Most of us like to work but unfortunately, because of injuries or illnesses, some people simply can’t. While many people never think about becoming disabled, according to the Social Security Administration, a twenty-year-old has a 30% chance of becoming disabled before reaching retirement age. Those less fortunate may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. Social Security benefits can make the difference between struggling financially and living on the edge and having the funds to survive and receiving medical care.
Social Security Disability Insurance benefits or SSDI pays monthly benefits to those who have worked and paid enough FICA (Social Security) taxes and have been or will be disabled or unable to work for 12 months or more.
Supplement Security Income
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is another disability program that pays monthly benefits to the blind or disabled who own very few assets and have little or no income. The maximum amount of SSI benefits for 2015 is $733 per month for individuals and $1,100 per month for couples. Some people may be eligible for both SSDI and SSI depending on the amount of their monthly SSDI benefits.
