Social Security Disability
What is Social Security Disability Insurance?
Social Security Disability Insurance allows a disabled person, and possibly his or her dependants, to receive benefits from that person’s own Social Security trust fund from his or her employment. These benefits are based on the income required by FICA, or the Federal Insurance Contributions Act. Andrea Pecora & Associates should be your first call if you are in need of SSDI benefits, or if you have any questions regarding Social Security Disability. We are more than happy to assist you any way we can!
What is the Supplemental Security Income Program?
The Supplemental Security Income Program can provide funds from general tax revenues to disabled persons who only have a limited source of income. In some cases, a supplemental benefit is paid in addition to federal funds, either by combining the two into one monthly check or by separating each payment. To find out more about the Supplemental Security Income Program, or SSI, contact the experts at Andrea Pecora & Associates today!
What is the Difference Between SSDI and SSI?
While SSDI and SSI share similarities in terms of concept, they are still two very different programs. For instance, a person’s eligibility differs for each program, as well as his or her benefits. Social Security Disability is an option for employees who have accrued enough work credits, while Supplemental Security Income is only available to low-income citizens who have not earned enough work credits to qualify for SSD. Many applicants may be eligible for benefits under both programs, but the only way to understand your needs is to call the qualified professionals at Andrea Pecora & Associates in Clarksburg, WV.
