The term Social Security disability covers two distinct federal programs:
- Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) program, which provides benefits to disabled workers, their dependents and surviving spouses
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program, which provides benefits to disabled individuals whose income and assets fall below a specific threshold
