The Social Security Administration (SSA) operates two programs intended to provide financial support for those who cannot work due to disabling injuries and illnesses. People who work and pay into the system for years prior to becoming disabled are often eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Those who cannot work due to disabilities and have extremely limited income and other assets may apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
A high percentage of claims for SSDI and SSI benefits are initially denied, but many valid claims can be won through reconsideration, hearings and appeals. In other cases, individuals and families suffer unnecessary hardship because they do not know when and how to file for these benefits.
