What happens if I am unable to work due to injury?

Explaining Supplemental Security Income

Adults and children who are disabled and have limited income resources can apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

This program is funded by revenue from general taxes, not Social Security tax.
