What Social Security Benefits Are Available?
Two programs are available through the Social Security Administration that provide monthly cash benefits if you cannot work due to a medical condition. Based on your situation, you could qualify for one or both disability benefit programs.
Monthly Cash Benefits
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). For people who have worked a certain length of time and paid Social Security tax on their earnings. When you are approved for SSDI, you usually receive a payment for the months you were eligible but waiting to be approved. If you are eligible for SSDI, you likely will be eligible for Medicare after two years.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI). For people with low income and assets. This program does not take into account your work history. Generally, if you qualify for SSI you also qualify for Medicaid.
