There are popular programs from Federal Social Security Administration for people with disabilities.
Most Popular Programs for Persons with Disability
The program for people with disabilities has Social Security Disability, also known as SSD and the other program is Supplemental Security Income also known as SSI. The SSI program has low-income requirements. That liquid income can decrease or eliminate SSI benefits. You may not be eligible if you have an income worth up to $2,000 for an individual or $3,000 for couples.
The SSI program uses a fixed federal rate of assistance supplemented by the state to determine the maximum rate the SSI will provide. There are many levels of benefits that SSI provides but this might differ depending from state to state as stated in a post by Marca.
Social Security for Persons with Disability
Social Security uses complex rules to put the family members’ income and resources into your record. Also, if someone helps you with your food or housing expenses, this may be counted as a part of your income.
The rules of Social Security can be confusing to anyone and if this applies to your situation, you might want to ask for help. Before you apply for SSI disability benefits, you should talk to an attorney or disability expert.
