SSI and SSDI Qualifications to file for benefits in Miami

In This Section:


The Social Security Administration administers two Social Security Disability benefit programs for individuals who are disabled and unable to work. If you are disabled with a medical condition which is expected to last for at least 12 continuous months or result in death and does not allow you to perform "substantial gainful activity", you may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) in Miami, Florida.

Social Security Disability Insurance in Miami provides wage replacement income for disabled wage earners who are no longer able to work. To qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance in Miami you must accumulate 20-40 work credits by working and paying employment taxes. Full time workers can accrue approximately 4 work credits per year. Credits to qualify will vary based on your age at the onset of your disability.

SSDI dependent benefits may also be paid to widows, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents over 18 years old, who were disabled prior to the age of 22.

If you do not qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance in Miami, but you are unable to work and have limited resources and income, you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Miami Supplemental Security Income benefits are for the disabled, aged (65 years or older) or those who have a Social Security blindness disability.
