ssi supplemental security income Archives

Your source of income (and amount) affects your SSI benefits

A couple of weeks ago, we wrote a post about Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and how this form of financial benefits is different than Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). There are many differences between the two common forms of Social Security benefits, but today we would like to discuss about one of them in a bit more detail: how income plays a factor in your Supplemental Security Income.

How does SSI differ from SSDI?

While there are many things that differentiate Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) -- such as the fact that SSDI is paid for by payroll taxes whereas SSI is paid for by general taxes --there is one main way that these two forms of financial assistance are differentiated: the eligibility requirements.

Taxing your SSDI benefits: is it possible?

Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income are two different forms of disability benefits for people who can no longer work due to a disability. SSDI has a more stringent set of rules to qualify for the benefits, but they provide more robust financial support. Supplemental Security Income is a bit easier to qualify for, as they are meant for people with limited or no financial resources.
