Social Security and Supplemental Security

Social Security disability benefits are benefits paid to those who are unable to work for at least a year or more because of an injury or sickness. In order to receive benefits after the onset of your ailment, you had to be previously paying Social Security taxes. In addition, you must be approved by the Social Security Administration to receive these payments.

Supplemental Security Income, on the other hand, is a part of Social Security that gives financial benefits every month to people that are retired, blind, or disabled in any other way. These are generally reserved for people with low income and who also qualify for Medicaid and food stamps.
