You may wonder what the difference is between Social Security Disability (SSD or SSDI) and Supplement Security Income (SSI). SSD is available for disabled people who have a consistent work history, have paid Social Security taxes (the mysterious FICA taxes on your paycheck stub) and have earned enough work credits to be covered. SSI is available to disabled people who have not worked, worked sporadically, worked too long ago, or for other reasons, are not covered for SSD.
For more information about SSD and SSI, go to the Social Security website and follow the link for “Benefits” at the top of the page.
