To be eligible for SSDI, you must have at least 10 consecutive years of work history and be unable to work in any capacity. You may qualify for benefits if you expect to be out of work for 12 months and are receiving treatment from a physician.


To be eligible for SSI, you must be either a U.S. citizen OR a permanent resident with 10 consecutive years of work history. No work history is necessary for U.S. citizens. The medical requirements for SSI benefits are the same as those for SSDI; however, non-medical eligibility is based on financial assets and countable income.

SSI is available to both adults and children. The application process can be particularly hard on parents seeking SSI for their child. We’ll partner with you to protect your family.
