If you have become disabled and are no longer able to work, you may be able to seek benefits under the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. This federal insurance program is funded by payroll tax and managed by the Social Security Administration. One may seek SSD benefits on a temporary or permanent basis, depending on the length of time that the applicant is likely to be disabled.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Social Security Disability Insurance is a program that offers benefits to disabled workers. To qualify, a worker must meet certain criteria. The worker must have a physical or mental impairment that prevents him or her from working. The condition must be expected to last for at least 12 months or must be expected to result in the worker’s death. The worker must be under the age of 65 and must have worked for 5 out of the last 10 years. Specific qualifications may vary, so it is important to discuss your specific situation with an attorney.
