Eligibility for SSI and SSDI

SSA has two different programs for disability benefits.

Who is eligible?

The Social Security Administration makes disability payments under two programs:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance for workers (and their children or surviving spouses) who have Social Security coverage.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for people with little or no income and resources.

If you think you may be eligible for payments, call 1-800-772-1213 to file a claim or contact your local Social Security Office .
