Social Security Benefits

Disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment(s) that limits a person’s ability to be gainfully employed for at least a year or can be expected to result in death. If you’re the victim of a traumatic injury or you’re struggling with a severe disease that limits your ability to perform routine activities, you may be entitled to one or more of the following benefits.

Retirement Survivors and Disability Insurance

The amount of Retirement Survivors and Disability Insurance (RSDI) you qualify for depends on the amount of Social Security you’ve paid during the course of your career. In general, you only qualify for this type of benefit if you’ve worked and paid into Social Security for at least 5 out of the last 10 years, or 20 out of the last 40 quarters. There are other eligibility factors for children, very young workers, spouses and widows.

Retirement Survivors and Disability Insurance (RSDI) Benefits

RSDI is based on how much you have worked and paid into Social Security. To be eligible for this benefit you generally must have worked and paid into Social Security five out of the last ten years or 20 out of the last 40 quarters. There are other eligibility factors for children, very young workers, spouses and widows.

Supplemental Security Income

The amount of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) you qualify for depends on your household income, assets, and property titles. To qualify, you need to have very low household income and minimal resources. Congress is responsible for federally appropriating SSI every two years.
