SSI and SSDI

after 2 years plus, I recieved a letter from social security for medical SSI.  I have an attorney at this point but I wonder if anyone knows if this is a sign I will also be approved for my SSDI?  I really have no clue if this is the right forum to post this question on, so I hope I do not upset anyone.  I just got all "happy" and then I re-read the form letter and saw SSI and knew that was not SSDI.  any comments would be appreciated.
I have paid in so much all my life and spent all my savings and sold all but my home pretty much.  I live off of the goodness of my friends and really want to return the monies I have been given.

regards
Lanier

a good friend of mine used to be a SS lawyer, and I started picking his brain in order to help some friends I've made on these hep c boards...he's the one that was pretty impressed with this guy's blog, and says it's a fairly accurate, step by step description of the journey...maybe you can get something from it...good luck...

Congratulations this is good you are getting the money. Sometimes the letters can be confusing to read.

I authored a petition that over 2,838 people have signed. It is on Change.org titled: Help Our Most Vulnerable Get Back On Their Feet. There is so much helpful current information in this petition that was launched on 12-09-15. Please if you have time read it and if you agree sign and share with as many people as you know that are on SSI. Thank you. Jason
