Abstract:

This two-page brochure in English and Arabic educates Iraqi Americans about Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Disability under SSA is based on a person's inability to work. The document explains what SSD and SSI are, and how one qualifies for benefits. It describes the five-step process used by the Social Security Administration to decide if a person is disabled, and outlines how to apply for benefits.
