The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a number of Disability Benefits Programs affording benefits to individuals with disabilities. Social Security Disability (SSD, also known as Title II disability insurance benefits, SSDI or DIB) provides benefits for a disabled individual based upon your employment earnings record. Supplemental Security Income (SSI. also known as Title XVI disability benefits) affords benefits to disabled individuals, including children, without sufficient earnings history to qualify for SSD and is based in part on your financial need. Disabled Widow/Widower Benefits (DWB) provides benefits based upon the earnings record of your deceased spouse or deceased former spouse if you are disabled and 50 years of age or older. Childhood Disability Benefits (CDB) allows benefits to an individual who can show disability before reaching 22 years of age and is based upon the earnings record of the individual’s deceased, disabled, or retired parent.
