Social Security Disability Insurance Program

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Program was established in 1956 and is an earned benefit funded through payroll taxes. More than 8 million Americans depend on SSDI funds for support. The SSDI program provides security and access to health care through Medicare for individuals who can not work due to severe physical or mental disabilities. If you have medical conditions that prevent you from working, then you need to apply for SSDI benefits as you have paid for this benefit and have earned the right to collect your benefits.
