Can a person get both SSI and SSDI disability benefits in Florida?

The simple answer is that it depends. One can be paid SSD (Social Security Disability) benefits in Florida. This is typically true regardless of any other assets or income. The question is whether SSI (Supplement Security Income) can be paid in addition to the SSD. In Florida, if the SSD amount is $730 or more, typically SSI cannot be paid. This is true for 2013. The amount may change in the future. SSI currently pays $710 per month in Florida. SSI takes into account other income. However, it excludes the first $20 of that income. Thus, for example, if your SSD were $720 per month, that would count against you at $700 per month and SSI would pay you $10 per month.
