How Spousal Income Can Affect Disability Benefits

One issue that often confuses clients is that the program known as "disability" is really made up two different programs: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Earnings Queries

Accurate documentation of a claimant's work history is essential to determine disability coverage, primary insurance amount, and overall eligibility under the Social Security Act. An earning query has been one method employed by adjudicators to resolve inconsistencies in reported work histories. The field office should reference a Disability Insured Status Calculator Online (DISCO), to establish coverage under Title II of the Social Security Act. Adjudicators at the field office can also obtain a claimant's Summary Earnings Query (SEQY), based on their total yearly earnings, or a Detailed Earnings Query (DEQY), which includes basic information on each employer who posted the earnings. Although disability adjudicators at the field office are not required to obtain these queries on initial application, analysts at the hearing level are required to secure at least a SEQY in all cases.

Woman may lose SSDI and SSI benefits due to 'miscalculation'

Do you think you could support two children and yourself by making only $9 per hour at a part-time job in Minneapolis? Even with inexpensive housing and cutting other costs like owning a car and going out to eat, making only $9 an hour at a part-time job may make it extremely challenging for families to make ends meet each month.
