Determining Eligibility for SSI
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are available to claimants in need who do not qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits based upon insufficient work credits. The medical criteria for disability is the same for both programs.
The United States Social Security Administration (SSA) has specific guidelines for SSI eligibility, which can be found on the official SSI website. SSI benefits are a special type of government subsidized income intended to supplement the low income of eligible individuals. Eligible individuals include the disabled or the elderly. Disabled children may also qualify. If the individual is disabled, elderly or blind but has not met work credit requirements for SSDI benefits, SSI benefits may be a viable option.
