Types of Social Security Benefits

The Social Security Administration pays disability benefits through two programs:
1. the Social Security Disability Insurance program
2. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.

You should apply for either program as soon as you become disabled. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Program The Social Security Administration manages the SSI program.

Even though Social Security manages the program, SSI is not paid for by Social Security taxes. SSI is paid for by U.S. Treasury general funds, not the Social Security trust funds.

SSI makes monthly payments to people who have low income and few resources and are: Age 65 or older; Blind; or Disabled.

Whether you can get SSI depends on your income and resources (the things you own). Social Security Disability Insurance Program Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. Federal law requires this very strict definition of disability. While some programs give money to people with partial disability or short-term disability, Social Security does not.
