SSD- social security disability is for those individuals who have earned enough credits through their jobs to qualify for SSD. You are eligible for SSD even if your spouse has a large income or if you have resources such as stocks, bonds and bank accounts. Resources don’t count for SSD eligibility.
SSI is for those individuals who don’t have enough work credits and who also have very limited income and resources. For 2010 the income limit is per month. Individuals are allowed $2000.00 in resources and a couple is allowed $3000.00 in resources. The house you live in does not count as a resource. You may also own one car per household.
