What is Social Security Disability?
These laws are designed to protect those who paid into this insurance fund in the event they become disabled. A number of federal and state programs provide assistance to those who are disabled. These programs include:
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is what we pay through payroll deductions. This insures against the possibility that you cannot work anymore due to a disability. SSDI is available to people who worked long enough and recently enough to have paid in a significant amount through their payroll deductions.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is for or those who have not paid into the insurance fund through payroll deductions, money may be available through SSI. It is paid to those with little or no income and very few assets, who may or may not have ever worked.
Medicare is a Social Security benefit. It is federally-funded health insurance for those over age 65 and is also available to individuals who were on SSDI for 24 months. Immediate eligibility is available for some special circumstances, but usually not for mental health disabilities.
Medicaid is health insurance available for those on SSI. It is managed by the state for their residents, and jointly funded by the federal and state governments.
