What Is Social Security Disability Insurance?
SSD or SSDI (not to be confused with Supplemental Security Income) is a federal insurance program managed by the Social Security Administration. It is designed to provide income supplements to Americans who are restricted (physically, psychologically, or emotionally) from working due to disability. The criteria for eligible disabilities are set by the government. You may be considered disabled under Social Security regulations if:
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death
- You cannot do the work that you did before the disability
- The government decides that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s)
