About the Social Security System: What is it?
The social security system performs two primary functions: (1) it provides monthly payments to people who are unable to work because of a disability (SSDI & SSI), and (2) it provides retirement benefits.
- “SSDI”, or Social Security Disability Income, is paid to people who are disabled, and who earned a sufficient amount of credit based on their past work history.
- “SSI”, or Supplemental Security Income, is a program that pays adults or children who are disabled and unable to work, and who do not qualify for SSDI payments.
To qualify for either SSDI or SSI, the claimant must prove his/her injury prevents him from working. This can be very difficult to prove to the social security administration. It can be a big advantage to have an experienced Abilene SSI/SSDI attorney on your side through the application and hearing process.
Living with a Disability
For disabled people in Abilene, the want ads in the Abilene Reporter-News call out mockingly. While others complain about their jobs our disabled residents hope to find a home to live in. No work for the disabled means no income for those who are most at risk. When others prepare for their future at Abilene Christian, McMurry and Hardin-Simmons Universities, disabled individuals struggle to prepare for their next meal. SSI or SSDI benefits can change that for a disabled person. No more hopelessness in the face of intimidating odds. SSI or SSDI can mean the difference between medical attention that allows a somewhat normal life and a continued life of misery. Those benefits mean food on the table and a place to live and gather with friends and family. SSI and SSDI mean the difference between hope and hopelessness.
