Is appeal hearing for SSI same as for SSDI?

I've read some of your threads about Social Security Disability Insurance appeals and I'm wondering if it the hearing for SSDI is pretty much the same as a hearing for Supplemental Security Income based on a disability? Is there anything different that I need to prepare for. Thanks for your help.

Yes, the hearings for SSI and for SSDI are the same and focus on the same issue.  The hearing is an opportunity for the administrative law judge to determine whether or not the applicant is disabled according to Social Security Administration standards.  If the applicant prevails on the appeal, the source of his payments (SSI or SSDI) will be based on a determination made by the SSA when the application was originally taken.  Hope that helps.
