Social Security Disability


Social Security Administration was initially founded and developed during the Social Security Act of 1935.  The Act included unemployment insurance, old-age insurance, and means-tested welfare programs. 

Tiers of Disability

There are two major tiers of disability. One tier is Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits, Title II claim. Second tier is Supplemental Security Income, Title XVI claim.  Title II Disability Benefits pays an individual and certain members of their family if they are "insured".  Insured status is established by the amount of years worked and the amount paid into Social Security taxes.  Title XVI benefits are based on financial need.  


Since initially developed, the Social Security Disability Program has made major changes and triumphs throughout the years.  Major reforms have taken place every decade beginning in the 1940s to most recent has the 2000s.  

Definition of disability

The true definition of disability is as follows: The said individual can not do the type of work that they did prior to; unable to adjust to other work if suggested; and, the disability has to last or expect to last for at least one year or more and/or result in death.  

Every person with a disability is an individual.
