Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

  • 1.800.772.1213

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federally run benefits program that provides aid to people who are unable to achieve gainful employment due to a permanent disabling condition. SSDI is financed by the Social Security tax. Therefore, any person that qualifies as disabled according to the definition provided by Social Security Administration (SSA); and who has paid Social Security taxes long enough to achieve sufficient work credits; can qualify for SSDI. Social Security Disability Insurance; also known as SSDI or SSD; provides income to individuals no longer able to work because of a physically or psychologically restrictive disability. SSDI is funded by payroll taxes and does not depend on the recipient’s income level; as it is based solely on work history and the degree of disability. Supplemental Security Income; or SSI; offers monetary assistance to low-income individuals who are at least age 65; blind; and/ or disabled. SSI pays cash benefits to supplement the cost of food; clothing; and shelter. Provides Medicaid coverage and monthly cash assistance to eligible individuals; eligibility is based on citizenship status, financial status and disability.
