For many people who are receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income Disability (SSID), it is their only source of income.
For Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) recipients, these benefits allow them to survive when they are unable to work because of a disability. However, the laws that provide these benefits are subject to change and beneficiaries need to stay up-to-date to make sure they are not at risk of losing their benefits.
The coronavirus and COVID-19 outbreak have impacted everyone in the U.S. However, people who are seeking financial benefits through the Social Security system may be more vulnerable because many are on a limited income.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, known as the “CARES Act,” was passed by Congress on March 25, 2020. For the average citizen, the primary benefit of the CARES Act is the direct payment or stimulus payment to help deal with the financial impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
