According to the Social Security Administration, Disability benefits are paid through two programs.
The Social Security Disability insurance program pays benefits to those people who have worked long enough and paid into Social Security taxes. If you have an adult child they may also qualify for benefits on your earning record if they have a Disability that began before age 22.
The Supplemental Security Income program provides benefits to children and adults who are disabled but have limited income and resources.
