I believe ssdi means soc sec death index but ssa is what I'm on because I worked all my life up to 3 yrs ago. But I believe ssi is for people who never worked? Idk it's confusing. I know people who get both but I never looked into it cause I'm not a mooch and I plan on working again. I have anxiety, ptsd, major depressive disorder and septic athristist and degenerit joint arthritis and plan on finishing nursing school once I'm stabilized on meds after I have this baby. If I can do that. Anyone can. But hey I'm not going to judge.

SSI is primarily for people who are not able to work because of mental disabilities/problems.

Uh I'm on SSDI. I get mail from SSDI. Though my bank says its SSA. Which is the Social Security Association. I worked for five out of the last ten years. I get that. SSI is where you haven't worked the five out of the last ten years. It can be for those who are disabled. I applied for both. I was approved for both. But I for get any money from SSI since I make too much from SSDI which is fine.



I will be going back to work eventually. I just hate the thing where people think all people on SSI/SSDI are lazy and don't want to work. Which is not true. I'm not going to say what I'm diagnosed with because I don't want to be judged but its a hefty diagnoses. If you would like to discuss this further PM me

SSI is for people who have not worked. SSDI is for those who worked last 5/10 years. Both for disabled persons

See thats what confuses me. My ex was on SSI because of a severe brain injury that caused a ton of mental issues, and had worked steadily before his incident. Wouldn't that mean he would be on SSDI?

It should but it also depends on how much he worked. Full versus part time.

What difference does it make on what they get?

You only can make a certain amount of money. I've heard they only can make $1010. That is including SSI. With SSDI you can't really work at all. You are certifying you can't work at all when you sign up for SSDI. And you shouldn't work if you are getting SSDI IMO. So say the most you can get on SSI is $690 or so (it's around that much) you can only work to get up to $1010. My math is not very good today so I can't figure out how much it would be. But it isn't very much.

You meant difference between SSI vs SSDI, didn't you? I'm sorry. There's really no difference except for amounts. When you get SSDI you can potentially receive more a month than $690 that is the most you get for SSI. I apologize yet again for that.

All of this is confusing. All the different ssi and ssa. I will never judge anyone cause I never walked In their shoes. But I know for myself it will help my depression to do something I love and that's nursing. I have people tell me to get a job but it's so easy for them to say that cause they don't know the pain I go through and how hard it is to wakeup in the morning and that anxiety gets so bad you feel like your having a heart attack. That's why I want to be stable on meds first. But I can't take none of them while pregnant. I don't collect ssa cause I'm lazy. I do it cause I have real medical problems that keep me from holding a job. I tried. Trust me. Its so easy for people to point fingers when they have never been in your situation.

Absolutely I agree. I'm going through the same thing.
