1h 4m

Created on July 23, 2020





This program will review the two common types of disability programs, Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance, including eligibility criteria for both programs and their appeals process. The program will then take a closer look at different family and humanitarian based immigrant categories and determine how these particular groups can be categorically eligible for these disability-based programs.

Presented by Ernie Collette and Joel Perez-Romano, this program will benefit attorneys and paralegals who work with immigrant clients seeking to become eligible for either needs-based disability benefits or disability benefits based on prior work.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify and explain two of the types of disability programs offered by the Social Security Administration, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), including basic application criteria, eligibility criteria, and appeals process
  2. Determine and outline specific family and humanitarian based immigrant categories, and describe a brief explanation of each category, including eligibility criteria
  3. Discuss the immigrant eligibility criteria for each disability program and how the eligibility for each program is similar or differs depending on each family or humanitarian based immigrant category
  4. Discuss work requirements and how those requirements impact eligibility for either SSI or SSD
  5. Predict how these programs could be impacted in the future
