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.
