Qualifications to receive SSDI and SSI benefits in Kansas City
The Federal Government has created two Social Security Disability benefit programs which are administered by the Social Security Administration. If you are disabled and are unable to work you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits.

Kansas City Social Security Disability Insurance is a wage replacement program for individuals who have a severe mental or physical health condition which is so severe they are unable to work and the condition is expected to last for 12 continuous months.

To qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance in Kansas City an individual must accumulate 20-40 work credits by paying payroll taxes during their employment. Widows, widowers, dependents and disabled dependents over 18 years old, who were disabled prior to the age of 22, may also be able to receive Social Security Disability benefit payments.

Claimants who do not have sufficient work credits to qualify for SSDI in Kansas City may qualify for Supplemental Security Income benefits. SSI benefits in Kansas City were created for individuals who have limited resources and income and are either disabled, aged (65 years or older), or have a Social Security blindness disability. To qualify for Supplemental Security Income in Kansas City an individual does not have to earn work credits.

What if you have not worked and you are not insured? Claimants who have not paid taxes or worked jobs covered by Social Security will not qualify for St. Paul SSDI. The Federal Government does, however, provide monthly cash assistance through the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program to the aged, the blind, or the disabled, who have very limited income and resources. Medicaid may also be available, in most states, for SSI recipients.
