What is the difference between Social Security disability (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?

Return to FAQs


Social Security disability is a pay in system. That is the one that pays more if you are actually accepted for disability because you paid into that system for a number of years. Supplemental income is for employees or people who have not really worked and earned enough in the pay in system but are still disabled so they might be eligible for a modest amount of money through the supplemental income program.
