Understanding Social Security Benefits

Social Security benefits are designed to provide financial assistance to individuals who are disabled and unable to work. For children with disabilities, there are two main types of benefits that are available: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

  • SSI: SSI is a needs-based program that provides monthly payments to disabled children who come from low-income households. In order to qualify for SSI, the child must meet certain income and resource limits.
  • SSDI: SSDI is a program that provides benefits to disabled children based on their parent’s work history. In order to qualify for SSDI, the child must have a parent who is disabled, retired, or deceased and who has paid into the Social Security system.
