Social Security disability benefits consist of monthly payments and / or Medicare benefits, which provide compensation to those who are disabled from performing substantial gainful work of any kind.
Introduction: SSDI vs SSI
Social Security benefits can be obtained through two programs: (1) Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or (2) Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
Both SSDI and SSI have the same medical requirements, to be discussed below. However, SSDI requires a certain amount of credit earned for prior work, whereas SSI is based solely on financial need, regardless of prior work.
What Is Disability?
A claimant will be considered disabled if he is unable to do any kind of work for which he is suited and his disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or results in death. The disability can be due to a physical or mental condition or a combination of a number of such conditions. If the claimant is found to be disabled, benefits will continue as long as the claimant remains disabled.
There is no age requirement for the receipt of disability benefits. If the claimant is receiving disability benefits at age 65, the disability benefits are automatically converted to retirement benefits. Click here
