Re: Question about disability

when you file for disability you automatically file for SSI and SSD. If you make too much money they will deny SSI. You usally get a decision pretty fast on the SSI, but the SSD usually takes a long time.

Re: Question about disability

pulsaki, i wouldn't be too concerned although when i got my approval letter it stated that i was approved for the SSI and the SS disability so hopefully you hear good news and like the other said unless you make too much money then you won;t qualify, but i reread and what that means i think is that you qualified under not being able to work and the other is if they think you can do any other type of work, something like that. Don't hold me to it as it's all still confusing as it is but sounds like you have a good start on this!

Re: Question about disability

Thats okay! SSI is is a income needs based payments and SSD is like how much credits you earned when you were able to work i believe. But there is also SSDI. I would contact them to see if you would qualify just to save headaches in the process they are probably more qualified to answer that about the income you can make in your family, plus on thier website they give you estimated amounts!

Re: Question about disability

my husband was denied ssi because of my income and insurance. but that had nothing to do with his disability claim. that has nothing to do with my income.

Re: Question about disability

Kimmie, To be eligible for SSDI you have to have a certain number of work credits over the past ten years and also qualify as disabled (unable to work). If you do not have enough work credits, then you need to apply for SSI.

SSI is awarded based on financial need if you can't work and do not have enough work credits to make you eligible for SSDI. If you or your husband make too much money (not sure how much) then you will not be elegible for SSI.

Your husbands income does not matter for SSDI but does matter for SSI.

I hope this helps.
