If I am able to accept Supplemental Security income, does that mean I can also receive Social Security disability insurance?
In March, 2011,I filed for both Supplemental Security income and Social Security disability insurance. I have received a notice of Award letter from Supplemental Security income, stating my application has been approved for being determined to be disabled. However, no benefits can be paid for April to June because my family income was above the limit.
If I have been found to be disabled by SSA for Supplemental Security income, does that mean that my Social Security disability insurance will also be automatically approved as long as I have earned enough work credits, which they have told me that I have. Or will I have to undergo a another different medical disability determination for Social Security disability insurance?
Since you have applied for both SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSD (Social Security Disability) at the same time, you will not have to undergo another medical disability determination. The decision will be purely financial depending on your income and resources.
