Social Security Disability

Disabled persons are eligible for two types of social security disability benefits: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Both benefits are federal programs that cater to people with permanent or long-term disabilities.

These benefits are governed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) while the Office of Adjudication and Review (ODAR) oversees claim hearings. Disability Determination Services (DDS) is tasked with handling medical reports on social security disability claims.

Disability is defined as any mental or physical condition or both that lasts for at least one year and interferes with your ability to work to meet a substantial income limit.
