What is the difference between SSD and SSI?

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD or SSDI) is funded with payroll taxes. Recipients are eligible for this insurance only after they have worked enough hours and paid into Social Security with the FICA taxes deducted from their pay.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is funded with general tax money and is for low-income people who have never worked or have not worked long enough to be eligible for SSDI. Eligibility is based on financial need.
