SSD vs. SSI: What’s the Difference?
There are two types of Social Security benefits you may be eligible for. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from working, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Meanwhile, Supplemental Security Income benefits are reserved for individuals who aren’t able to earn sufficient income because of a disability. In either case, you must meet certain criteria in order to qualify for benefits. Karl Trucks can help you determine if you meet the required standards for SSD or SSI benefits.
Our firm can help you fight for the benefits you may be owed by:
- Deciding if you should file an SSD or SSI claim
- Gathering and submitting proper medical evidence on your behalf
- Determining if you meet Social Security’s definition of “disabled”
- Helping you navigate the lengthy process of filing an SSD or SSI claim

We strive to help our clients achieve the best possible outcome and will work tirelessly to help you recover the benefits you are owed.
