What is Social Security Disability?

Social Security Disability is not paid by general taxes – it receives funding entirely by employees paying income tax. Social Security is a way for disabled or retired individuals to maintain an income when they cannot work. Social Security Disability is specifically for those disabled in a way that they cannot physically or mentally perform occupational tasks. Because of this, they cannot earn an income traditionally. SSD is notoriously difficult to obtain. It is essential to hire attorney John H. Shumate before you apply or if you need to appeal.

What is the Difference Between SSD & Supplemental Security Income?

Supplemental Security Income is similar to SSD. It provides an income to those who are not able to work on an as-needed basis. These are generally people with low or no income. They also do not have enough work credits to be eligible for Social Security Disability.

General taxes pay for SSI instead of the Social Security fund, which is another key difference between the two. SSI can be paid from the month or after the month of the date of filing. If you believe you are in need of SSI, call John H. Shumate, Esq., as soon as possible. Our law firm will help determine what your best options are and stand by you every step of the way.
