The Difference Between SSI And SSDI

The largest difference between Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is that SSI is intended for low-income people, while SSDI is based on a person's work history.

SSI is funded by general tax revenues, not Social Security taxes. SSI was created to make eligibility for federal benefits uniform across all states.
