Our Lancaster Social Security Lawyers Help You Understand the Differences Between SSDI and SSI So You Know If You Qualify.

Our PA Social Security Lawyers can help you understand the differences between SSD and SSI (sometimes called SSDI and SSI) and determine whether you can get benefits from both Social Security Disability Benefits? Obtaining Social Security Disability Benefits can be both confusing and frustrating without the guidance of experienced Social Security attorneys who know what it takes to secure Social Security Disability (SSD or SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits. While SSD is considered a security blanket for those who have worked, SSI can be considered a safety net for those who have limited income and resources. The main difference between SSD and SSI is that an individual need not have accumulated the minimum required work credits to be eligible for SSI.

In other words, an individual can be considered for SSI regardless of his or her work history.

In order to be eligible for SSI, you must be at least 65 years of age, blind, or disabled. Determining whether an individual is disabled is generally conducted in the same manner for both SSD and SSI; that is, does the individual have a medically determinable physical or mental impairment that prevents him or her from working.

Both SSD and SSI allow for retroactive benefits. For SSD, individuals may be eligible for retroactive benefits up to 12 months prior to the submission of their application for benefits. For SSI, individuals will be eligible for retroactive benefits beginning the month after they submit an application.

Furthermore, those who are eligible for SSI usually qualify for Medicaid. Those who qualify for SSD will instead qualify for Medicare. With regard to Medicare, there is a two-year grace period before these benefits start.
