Supplemental Security Income in Albuquerque Northeast Heights
The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program provides cash assistance to low-income disabled individuals who are elderly (65+) or blind. SSI is a safety net for certain people who are unable to afford food, clothing, shelter, and other basic necessities. The exact amount that someone who qualifies for SSI benefits can expect to receive will depend on their living arrangements and personal resources.
Social Security Disability Income in Albuquerque Northeast Heights
Social Security Disability Income, or SSDI, is a payroll-funded insurance program administered by the federal government that provides monthly cash payments to people who are unable to work due to a physical or mental disability.
Eligibility for SSDI benefits is restricted to individuals who meet the following criteria:
- Unable to work because of disability that is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death
- Meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of “disability”
- Have worked a minimum of time at a job that is covered by Social Security
It is important to understand that SSDI only pays for total disability. SSDI benefits for a partial or short-term disability are not available.
