Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides financial assistance to people with disabilities. The program is administered by the Social Security Administration for individuals who have a disability and meet specific medical criteria.
This program pays benefits to individuals and certain members of their family if they become disabled and have enough work credits, meaning that they have worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes.
