Quite often I am asked, "What's the difference between Supplemental Social Security Disability (SSI) and Social Security Disability (SSD)?" Here is a quick overview of these two programs:
We are often asked to explain to clients why they don't financially qualify for disability benefits, even though they worked most of their lives. A client might see a neighbor receiving disability from the Social Security Administration, and that neighbor never worked. What the client might not realize is that the Social Security Administration (SSA) provides disability benefits to qualified individuals both with and without a work history.
At Quatrinini Rafferty, compassion and respect define our approach to the practice of law. We understand that applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a difficult and intimidating experience. The Social Security Disability lawyers at Quatrinini Rafferty - Tereasa Rerko, Brian Bronson, Michael Quatrini, and Adam Quatrini - are approachable, sympathetic, and knowledgeable.
