The Social Security Administration maintains programs for payment of benefits to disabled individuals. The first program, referred to as "Social Security Disability" (SSD), makes payments to individuals who became disabled and who have worked over a specified number of years. The individuals' earnings record and payments into Social Security while working are the source of the benefits paid.
The second program, "Supplemental Security Income" (SSI) makes payment to disabled individuals who have not worked enough quarters to be entitled to disability benefits under the SSD program. Eligibility for payments under the SSI program, like SSD, are predicated on proof of a disability based upon physical or mental impairments or a combination of both. A means test is applied by the Social Security Administration to determine eligibility for SSI benefits.
If your application for benefits has been denied, an appeal must be filed with he Social Security Administration within 60 days in order for you to have a hearing on your right to receive payments of benefits.
