SSA Programs

Social Security Programs

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a United States government program that provides monthly stipends to low income people who are either aged 65 or older, blind, or disabled. Although administered by the Social Security Administration, SSI is funded from the U.S. Treasury general funds, not the Social Security trust fund.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a Social Security program that pays monthly benefits to you if you become disabled before you reach retirement age and are not able to work.

If you need help in understanding or applying for any of these benefits – please call Career Start (949) 830-5302.
