Social Security Application | How To Qualify for SSI or SSDI

The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities. While these two programs are different in many ways, both are administered by the Social Security Administration and only individuals who have a disability and meet medical criteria may qualify for benefits under either program.

Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are "insured," meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes.

Supplemental Security Income pays benefits based on financial need.

 

When you apply for either program, the social security administration will collect medical and other information from you and make a decision about whether or not you meet Social Security's definition of disability.

You can start your disability application immediately online or make an appointment with your local social security office.

For most disability applicants, the safest and easiest method of filing a disability application will be to contact your local social security office and inform them that you want to apply for disability.

Once you have notified your local Social Security office that you wish to apply for disability benefits, an appointment will be scheduled for you. This appointment may be conducted in person at the Social Security office, or over the phone. If you choose to have a phone interview, all of the necessary paperwork will be mailed to you.
