SSDI Vs. SSI

There Are Several Options For Your Benefits

The Social Security Administration offers disabled Americans two types of benefits: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Depending on your work history and how much income you have earned in your lifetime, you may be entitled to SSDI or SSI.

Yet, how do you know which type is right for your situation? At the Law Offices of Clark, James, Hanlin & Hunt, LLC, we have been helping disabled individuals throughout Alabama obtain the Social Security benefits they need since 1974. We can evaluate your situation and give you our professional opinion.

SSD Versus SSI: Which Benefits Are Right For You?

There are several important differences between SSI and SSDI. SSI is available to low-income individuals who either have not earned enough money during their lifetime to qualify for SSDI or have not paid into the Social Security system. Meanwhile, SSDI is available to those who have spent their lives working and paying into the Social Security system.

An attorney or staff member will thoroughly evaluate your work history and income level, as well as the nature and extent of your disability, to determine whether you may qualify for SSDI or SSI. We also help clients who do not qualify for SSDI pursue the SSI benefits they need to pay their bills and support their families.

At our firm, we are dedicated to disability law, making us the perfect choice to help you pursue the benefits you need. Whether you are eligible for SSDI or SSI, our attorneys have the legal knowledge and experience to represent you during every stage of your Social Security claim.
