WHAT IS SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY?
Social Security Disability Insurance, or “SSDI,” is a federal program that is funded by social security taxes and pays monthly benefits to you if you have a severe physical or mental disability, or a combination of the two, that prevents you from working, and you become disabled before you reach retirement age.
CAN I QUALIFY FOR SSDI?
Social Security pays monthly benefits to you if you are determined by the Social Security Administration to be disabled and if you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes.
You must also have built up sufficient “work credits” with Social Security. Exactly how many credits you will need depends on your age and the year you became disabled. Generally, you must have worked 5 out of the last 10 years before you became disabled. If you cannot qualify for SSDI, you might be able to qualify for Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”).
