What is a Concurrent Claim?
Some former workers in financial need will be eligible to apply for both SSDI and SSI. These claims are called “concurrent claims.”
SSA considers all applicants in current financial need for SSI benefits. While SSA evaluates many claimants for both SSDI and SSI benefits, disability insurance benefits usually pays more than SSI benefits. If a former worker is entitled to both kinds of benefits, the benefits are not added together. Disability insurance benefits offsets SSI benefits.
