Social Security Disability (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are similar, yet different.

• Recognize the importance of the onset date, retroactivity and the waiting period.
• Distinguish what income and resources are excludable.
• See whose income is countable and how it affects payment.
• Learn about the application process.
• Differentiate between Medicare and Medicaid eligibility.
• Utilize the many online resources from applying to maintaining benefits.
