Social Security Disability Overview

September 12, 2011

Applying for Social Security Disability can be a confusing, bureaucratic process. Here are some basics to help get you started:

SSI vs. DIB - Social Security Disability is comprised of two programs, Supplemental Security Income ("SSI") and Disability Insurance Benefits ("DIB"). To be eligible for either program, a claimant must be found disabled. Work history, assets, and spousal income are some of the main factors in determining whether an individual qualifies for SSI or DIB.

60 Days - 60 days is an important number when applying for Social Security Disability. Because the process typically includes several denials, a claimant needs to appeal these denials to keep the claim active.
