Your daughter will have to prove she is not able to perform SGA working any jobs in the national economy in order to be approved for SSDI and/or SSI. With SSI there is also income and resource criteria. SSI is welfare and considered government assistance so her income has to be low. If she is single she is not allowed to have more than $2,000 in resouces. If she is married, her husbands income will count against the SSI. It is unusual for someone to receive SSI when they have a spouse that is working or when they have other income. The medical criteria is the same for SSI and SSDI.
If she is eligible for SSDI with the few work credits she has due to her age and it is not more than $736 a month in 2017 and she meets the SSI financial criteria for SSI, she can receive SSDI and SSI for a total of $726 a month.
There is a 5 month waiting period for SSDI. If someone meets the financial criteria for SSI, they can receive SSI for those 5 months.
Medicaid comes with SSI and Medicare comes with SSDI. Medicare is far better than Medicaid. When someone is low income and they receive Medicare or if they receive SSDI and SSI, they are eligible for Medicaid to pay their Medicare Premiums, co/pays and deductibles. This is called Medicare Savings Program.
With her age and her still being able to work, it will be extremely difficult if not impossible for her to be approved.
SSDI and SSI are both Federal Programs and are the same in all 50 states.
My body is still in shock with the drastic temperature changes last night. It was in the high 70's and within a few hours last night it was in the low 30's.
