If you have become disabled, or can no longer perform the work you have done in the past, it is time to file for disability benefits.
Facing a disabling condition can be challenging both physically and emotionally. Whether you are coping with a newly-diagnosed illness or struggling with a degenerative illness that has progressed and is causing additional limitations to your daily activities, can be painful for both you and your loved ones. You are not only faced with your health concerns, but the mounding medical bills, family responsibilities and other financial obligations with lack of income or resources can take a toll on you and could cause additional health issues.
What’s the difference between the social security disability and SSI disability programs?
Both programs require that you be disabled; but benefits are calculated differently for the two programs. There are also differences in the way the two programs are operated. SSI is a federal welfare program. As such, there is a limit on the amount of “assets” you may have in order to receive any payment at all. Also, the monthly amount of SSI benefits SSA will pay you depends on your income from all sources, including the amount of your social security disability benefits. In your case, it appears that your social security disability benefits will be great enough to disqualify you from receiving on-going SSI benefits. But you’ll get some SSI back benefits.
Social security disability, on the other hand, is similar to an insurance program. You are eligible for social security disability benefits because you are disabled and because you paid social security taxes.
All SSI benefits are processed at your local Social Security Office. Social security disability benefits for most people are processed in Baltimore, Maryland. Benefits of those people who are over age 55 are processed in regional payment centers.
