Life situations bring about unexpected events. One minute you are breathing in the fresh air, the glass is half full, you’re healthy, working, financially stable, and enjoying life. Out of nowhere or over a period of time, what you thought were minor physical or mental health issues, sometimes both, renders you unable to work. No longer optimistic, the glass is half empty, you lost your job due to health reasons, and you’re financially unable to support yourself and your family.

So what now? What do you do, who do you call?

You contact the Law Office of Deondra Sexton as filing for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI aka DIB) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) could be the solution.

SSDI and SSI are programs administered or managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA). The programs are different, and each has its own qualifying factors for eligibility and entitlement. SSDI is based on covered Social Security earnings, which in turn determines required insured status. The SSDI program will pay benefits to qualifying individuals and certain qualifying family members based on medical and non-medical qualifying factors. To be approved for SSDI, not only is insured status required, but also a disability finding from the Social Security Administration that the condition renders you disabled according to Social Security’s definition of a disabling condition.

In contrast, SSI is not based on insured status. SSI makes monthly payments to qualifying persons who have low income, few resources, and are 65 or older, blind or disabled.

It is important to understand the Social Security Administration determines disability based on its definition, standards, rules, laws, and guidelines of what it considers a disabling condition.
