    Assistance from the state due to a disability is not the same thing as disability from social security (a federal agency). It is MUCH more difficult to get ssi disability or social security disability benefits and the fact that you were approved for some type of benefits via DSS is no indication that you can expect to be approved by social security. But it does sound like you will be eligible for DSS assistance.

    full assistance through any state is not the same as SSI

    some states have general assistance.. others don't... we don't have any way of knowing what you can expect
