Social Security Disability is a federal insurance program created by the United States government and managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA). It is funded by payroll taxes and provides income supplements to those who are no longer able to work as a result of a disability. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is also a federal program funded by tax revenues and is intended to provide financial assistance to low-income individuals who need help affording food, clothing, and/or shelter.

Applying for SSDI or SSI benefits can be a challenging and complicated process, and it’s common for first-time applications to be denied. At Schott Law, our dedicated legal team is committed to working closely with each of our clients to determine their eligibility, prepare a successful application, and, if necessary, pursue an appeal. Whatever the specifics of your situation may be, we’re here to help you access your hard-earned benefits.


Q What sort of disability benefits are offered by the government?

There are two disability benefits programs offered by the United States Social Security Administration (SSA): Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The first is available to individuals who have paid into Social Security taxes while working over a certain period of time, while the latter provides benefits based on financial need. SSDI benefits are paid to applicants who satisfy a certain criteria (disability and time spent in the workforce), while SSI benefits are typically paid only to individuals who show total rather than partial or short-term disability.

Q What is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)?

This federal assistance is provided to individuals with disabilities through Social Security Disability programs administered by the Social Security Administration. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is benefits paid to you and certain members of your family if you are considered insured by certain medical and legal criteria. To receive SSDI you must have worked and paid Social Security taxes for a specified amount of “credited” years. Attorney Maggie R. Schott is familiar with these requirements and can help determine if you are eligible to receive SSDI benefits.

Q What is Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?

This federal program is funded by general tax revenues rather than Social Security taxes, and benefits are paid out based on financial need. SSI is designed for those who are blind, aged, or otherwise disabled and have little income. They are designed to provide cash to meet basic food, clothing and shelter needs. There are certain eligibility requirements that must be met in order for an individual to receive SSI benefits, including age and disability, limited income and resources, and certain residency requirements. Call 509-328-5789 to speak with Social Security attorney Maggie R. Schott and see if you or a loved one qualifies for SSI benefits.
