Different Types of Social Security Disability

SSDI

When people refer to Social Security disability, they are normally referring to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), which is an income replacement program for people who have worked and contributed into the Social Security program but are now unable to work due to a physical or mental impairment. The amount awarded to the disabled claimant is based on the amount of money the claimant earned and contributed to the Social Security program in the past.

SSI

Another type of Social Security disability program is called Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This program is primarily a need-based program that pays benefits to people who otherwise are not able to earn a living because of a severe physical or mental impairment. Regardless of whether the claimant has worked in the past, eligibility is based purely on financial need and physical or mental disability. Let the Attorneys at Brock & Stout help you navigate through the process.

Am I eligible for Social Security Disability?

Many people ask the question, “How do I qualify for Social Security Disability?” Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question. Whether or not a person qualifies as disabled depends on a wide variety of factors. Below are the top five questions that need to be answered during the evaluation process with social security disability attorneys.

1. Are You Still Working?
When you apply for disability, the first step is to determine whether you are engaging in work-related activity. If so, how much money do you earn? If you are not working at all or if you are working and earning less than $1,000 per month, you may be eligible for disability benefits.
2. Do you have a severe impairment?
The second step is to determine whether you have a “severe” impairment. Are you limited in ordinary activities such as standing, sitting, walking, lifting or other activities? Do you have problems with depression or anxiety? A “severe” impairment may be physical or mental. If you do not have a “severe” impairment, your claim is denied at this step. If you have one or more impairments, your claim proceeds to the next step.
3. Does your condition meet one of Social Security's listings?
The third step is to determine whether your “severe” impairment satisfies the disability criteria specified by the Social Security Administration. Social Security has a list of medical impairments divided into categories. Social Security then specifies different disability criteria for each impairment. If your disability satisfies the criteria of a listed impairment, you are considered disabled.
4. Can you perform the same type of work you've done in the past?
In order to determine whether a claimant is truly disabled, Social Security has to decide if the claimant can return to the same type of work that he or she has done in the past. If they determine you are no longer able to able to perform the duties required by previous jobs you have had in the past, your claim will proceed to the next step.
5. Can you perform other types of work in order to earn a living?
The fifth and final step is to determine whether your impairment prevents you from doing other types of jobs with your limitations and abilities.
