Disability insurance benefits provide partial wage replacement to eligible workers unable to work because of a medical or physical illness or injury (non-work related), which prevents them from performing their regular or customary work (including pregnancy). SDI benefits generally last a year. Eligibility includes being unable to do your regular work for at least eight days and having earned at least $300 from which SDI deductions were withheld. Online application available.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) pays wage replacement income benefits to those who worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. Eligibility includes having worked in jobs covered by Social Security and having a medical condition that meets Social Security's definition of disability. Generally available to people who are unable to work for a year or more. (Federal program administered by U.S. Social Security Administration.)
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program pays benefits to aged, blind, and disabled people who have limited or no income, providing cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing and shelter. SSI is funded by general tax revenues and eligibility is based on income and disability, not years of experience. (Federal program administered by U.S. Social Security Administration.)
