Disability Insurance Benefits are based upon an individual's past earnings or the FICA tax withheld from wages.
Supplemental Security Income is a public assistance program for the elderly, disabled and blind that is based upon financial need.
An individual must be eligible for one or both benefits before a determination of disability can be made.
The Social Security Administration definition of disability:
To be found disabled an individual must be unable to work because of a physical or mental condition or combination of conditions that can be expected to result in death or has lasted or is expected to last 12 consecutive months. The condition(s) must not only prevent the individual from performing past jobs but any job the individual is qualified to do considering his or her age, educational background, work history and physical and/or mental condition. Generally speaking, the younger and more educated an individual is, the more difficult it will be to prove disability.
