Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are provided to disabled workers and their families who are considered “insured,” This means that they worked throughout their lives and paid Social Security taxes through their paychecks.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a separate program that provides benefits to disabled adults and children who have little income and few resources to meet their everyday needs. To be eligible, your income and financial resources must be less than specific limits set by the program. It is also available to individuals aged 65 and above who are not disabled but who qualify under the program’s financial limits.
Veteran Administration (VA) benefits provide health care, education, pensions, home loans, disability compensation, and more to those who have served in the military. It also applies to spouses, children, and parents of deceased and disabled service personnel or veterans. These benefits must be applied for according to the VA and are only available to those who have not been dishonorably discharged.
