Helping People Unable to Continue Working Recover Social Security Disability Insurance

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a government program that assists individuals who are unable to continue working. To be eligible for SSDI benefits a person must have a disability or disorder that prevent them from earning a living and have previously accumulated a sufficient number of work credits. Credits are earned when an individual pays social security income taxes, making a contribution to the fund.
