Your Representative should support any and all that helps people with Disabilities. This is just the right thing to do. The Republicans have been trying to cut help for the people that have a Disability. This is just another way the Republicans are real scumbags. Nobody should be proud to be a Republican ever since Barrack Obama became President. The Republican Party has become Cult under Trump.
The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs provide assistance to people with disabilities. This page provides detailed information to help you understand what to expect from Social Security during the application process.
The Basics About Disability Benefits
The SSDI program pays benefits to you and certain family members if you are “insured.” This means that you worked long enough – and recently enough – and paid Social Security taxes on your earnings. The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program pays benefits to adults and children with disabilities who have limited income and resources.
While these two programs are different, the medical requirements are the same. If you meet the non-medical requirements, monthly benefits are paid if you have a medical condition expected to last at least one year or result in death.
