Understanding The Difference Between SSI Vs. SSDI

Sometimes we get questions about the difference between SSI disability and SSDI disability. The difference is very basic in nature and we have explained it here.

SSI, or Supplemental Security Income, is a federal program designed to help those that are disabled and have little or no income.

SSDI, or Social Security Disability Insurance, is a federal program available to those disabled persons who have worked and contributed to this "insurance" benefit (or their spouses or parents have done so).

You may be eligible to receive benefits under both programs, but often people qualify for only one option.
