What is the difference between Social Security Disability (DIB) and Supplemental Security Income?
This terminology is confusing because both programs are administered by the Social Security Administration.
Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, is a program financed through general tax revenues-not through Social Security trust funds.
SSI disability benefits are paid to people who have a disability and who don’t own much or have much income.
Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits, or DIB, is a program that workers, employers, and the self-employed pay for with their Social Security taxes. You qualify for these benefits based on your work history, and the amount of your benefit is based on your earnings.
