A brief overview of Social Security disability options

Social Security options can be confusing but the good news is that there are different options available for disabled individuals. There are two primary types of benefits available to disabled individuals through the Social Security Administration. The two types of benefits that may be available are Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income. There are different qualification requirements between the two programs which provide different options for disabled individuals.

Help learning how to obtain disability benefits is available

It is important to understand that both short-term and long-term disability benefits may be available to disabled individuals depending on their circumstances. It is also important that disabled individuals are familiar with the different options available to them and the process through which to apply for the option that is best for them to receive financial help through Social Security disability insurance payments or Supplemental Security Income benefits.

How can I qualify for Supplemental Security Income?

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may be a Social Security option that disabled individuals are not as familiar with as other options. Disabled individuals who are familiar with disability options may wonder what there is to know about SSI benefits. SSI benefits are for disabled individuals with limited income and resources. For individuals who are disabled, over 65 or blind, SSI benefits may be a viable option to consider, especially if they lack the necessary work history to qualify to receive Social Security disability (SSD) benefits.

Social Security disability benefits for digestive disorders

Disabled individuals suffering from digestive disorders may be able to receive Social Security disability (SSD) benefits. Digestive disorders include inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis; gastrointestinal hemorrhage; short bowel system; malnutrition; and liver dysfunction. Additional problems and complications, including obstructions, may also lead to disabilities.
