SSDI vs. SSI
While Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is designed to support individuals who are disabled and can’t work, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are designed to support disabled adults and children with limited income and resources. SSI benefits are also available to people aged 65 and older without disabilities who meet specific income requirements.

How do SSI benefits work?
SSI benefits can help provide basic needs, such as clothing, food, and shelter if you have limited income or resources and are:
- Age 65 or older.
- Blind, or suffer from a visual disability.
- A disabled adult or child.
SSI benefits are awarded in the form of a monthly cash payment and vary based on your individual income, living arrangements, and other factors. Because these factors can change over time, SSI benefits are routinely reevaluated to ensure you continue to meet the requirements of the SSI program.
