Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a program designed and administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to provide financial assistance to you if you’re no longer able to work due to a severe disability.
How You Can Be Eligible for SSDI
To be eligible for SSDI, you must have a disability that’s expected to last for at least a year or result in death. The disability must also prevent you from performing any substantial work. Additionally, you must have earned enough work credits through paying Social Security taxes to qualify for the program. These work credits are earned based on the amount of money you earn and the number of years you have worked.
