What, exactly, is the difference between SSI and SSDI? The primary way in which they differ is that Supplemental Security Income provides cash payments to disabled children and adults, as well as U.S. citizens age 65 or older, who fall beneath the applicable income threshold. SSI is a means-tested welfare program that provides regular financial benefits to approximately eight million poor Americans who are aged, disabled, or blind.
In contrast, Social Security Disability Income benefits are predicated not on financial need but rather on disability status and work credits. Proving your eligibility for SSDI benefits essentially boils down to showing that you have a medical condition that meets the Social Security Administration’s definition of “disability,” and also demonstrating that you have worked long enough in a qualified job. SSDI benefits are generally only paid to individuals with a disability that renders them unable to work for a year or more.
