What is the Difference between SSDI and SSI?

Social Security Disability (SSD) insurance and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are government benefit programs. If you are disabled now or have been in the past, you may qualify for one or both of these programs. At David Allen & Associates, our experienced Social Security Disability attorneys help people achieve eligibility for SSD and SSI throughout California, Nevada and the West.

About Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI)

SSD compensates workers who are unable to work for a year or more after suffering an illness or injury. To qualify for this program, you must have an employment history. The amount of your benefit award will depend partly on the length of time you worked before becoming disabled. A broad range of injuries and illnesses may qualify you for SSD benefits. The Sacramento disability attorneys at David Allen & Associates are here to help you file your application and represent you if your claim gets denied.

About Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

SSI benefits are available to people with little or no income. If you were unable to work for five years or longer due to a long-term disability, you may qualify for SSI benefits even if you now have a job. David Allen & Associates helps you determine if you are eligible for SSI. Our Social Security and disability lawyers in Oakland will work with you to prepare your application, and we fight for your rightful benefits if your claim is rejected.
