What is the Difference Between Social Security Insurance (SSI) and Social Security Disability (SSD)?
The most significant difference between SSI and SSD is that SSI is based on age/disability, whereas SSD is based on long-term disability. Other than this, Social Security and Disability are similar in many ways. Both are forms of federal government assistance designed to help people with disabilities make sure that they have the income they need to survive. But while both programs offer assistance, they have different ways in which they provide it. For example, how are SSI and Disability benefits calculated? Here are some things to know about the differences between SSI and Disability.

What Our Clients are Saying
I was told by a friend that Steve Hoskins was a good attorney. I called when I had my accident, he held my hand throughout the whole process. Just because you get in an accident doesn’t mean your life is over. They helped me through every step with respect. If anyone ever asked me I would highly recommend Mr. Hoskins. They treated me like family. It definitely has been a pleasure working with him. He was nice and very respectful to me, I will be paying it forward.
We have used this firm for many legal issues. From the front desk to the courtroom, the compassionate people in this firm make us feel like family. Wins or losses aside, we always feel they did their very best for us. The fees are well within the FL average, and well worth the dollars spent. Mostly the little extra the assistants do is the glue that holds the office together.

They exceeded all of my expectations. Specifically my attorney Taylor Hoskins. They dealt with the insurance companies, doctors, and so much more. I was involved in a motorcycle accident and needed help desperately. Not only did they deal with the issues of the lawsuit, they treated me with compassion and care. I also had to get disability and they took care of that. I received disability in only 5 months! All of the staff was caring and hands on. There was not one time that I was disappointed! Not once. I highly recommend this law firm.
