THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SSDI and SSI
Two Sources of Financial Help for People With Disabilities, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are separate and distinct programs sharing one common purpose … helping Americans who are unable to work or support themselves because of a disability. These programs were not part of the Social Security Act originally when signed into law by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but were added in later years.
Both programs, SSDI and SSI, are run by the Social Security Administration (SSA), and are similar in other respects as well. The claims process is the same. The appeals process is the same. The basic age requirements and having a disability that will prevent you from doing any work for at least one year are the same as well.
California Disability Advocates/ CDA offers experienced legal help for SSDI and SSI claims alike. In fact, this is the only work we do. Call or contact us today for a free consultation. 310-445-3322 or visit our website at Jalilvandgroup.com
Why do you need to hire a firm to help you with your Disability Claims?
MJ: A lot of individuals think that it would be easy to claim disability benefits if they get injured physically or suffer mental conditions that will prevent them from doing substantial work. However, for those who have gone through the actual process of claiming disability benefits, they know that this is not usually the case.
In filing a disability claim, for example, it is important to know the difference between Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Most claims initially get denied outright because of either misapplication or lack of proof or general requirements in filing of disability claims. Also, time is a factor in applying for disability benefits as getting qualified for disability benefits is a long process and it could take three to five months before you receive a letter from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
As you can see, it is very important that you provide the best claim possible in order for you to increase your chances of getting approved and this is where at California Disability Advocates we can help you get that edge.
