If she is receiving payments for disability from Social Security it is SSD, and it is income! If it is payments from a private disability insurance policy, it is income also. SSI is for retirees only.

SSI is for Disabled as well. Here direct from the Social Security website:

The SSI program provides monthly income to people who are age 65 or older, or are blind or DISABLED, and have limited income and financial resources. Effective January 2005 the SSI payment for an eligible individual is $579 per month and $869 per month for an eligible couple. If you are married, and only one person is eligible, a portion of your spouse's income may be counted. In addition, your financial resources (savings and assets you own) cannot exceed $2,000 ($3,000 if married). You can be eligible for SSI even if you have never worked in employment covered under Social Security.
