Difference Between SSI And SSDI In North Carolina

Gaining needed access to Social Security benefits is important for every American finding themselves unable to work due to a mental/physical disability. Without the ability to gain these benefits, many Americans find themselves impoverished, which makes their lives even more difficult to sustain while having a serious disability.

Generally speaking, you will be either applying for SSI or SSDI benefits when seeking assistance from the Social Security Administration. Knowing which plan is right for you can help you gain the benefits you need successfully and in a time-efficient manner.

Navigating this decision, filing the appropriate documents, and providing evidence to the SSA becomes much easier when you have a qualified Social Security law attorney. Finding a talented SSDI or SSI in North Carolina can seem complicated, but when you look at the advantages the Clauson Law Firm, PLLC team has to offer you, the choice is clear. Allow Clauson Law Firm, PLLC to guide you through every step of the way and guide you to an affordable route toward gaining your needed Social Security disability benefits.

Before Going Any Further in The Process, You must Understand the Differences Between SSDI and SSI

SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance): a benefit that is paid to people whose disability(s) are severe enough to keep them from engaging in any consistent work that would allow them to earn an income. To qualify for SSDI benefits, you must be expected to be limited by your disability(s) for at least 12 months.

SSI (Supplemental Security Income): pays benefits to people who are very low-income and have very limited assets whose situation has arisen from a disability. SSI benefits are only available to people 65 and older, and those younger than 18.

Both programs are funded differently and hold different requirements when applying for benefits. While your age may tell you which plan is right for you, those who fall in certain age ranges may be confused about which program is the right fit for them.
