It is designed to provide income supplements for people who are physically hindered from being employed because of a disability. Injuries and illnesses approved under this program must be expected to last longer than one year or to result in death. This program was established in 1956 and it is funded through payroll taxes as a result of the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA).

Showing Eligibility for SSDI
SSDI is a program that, unlike Supplemental Security Income (SSI), does not base benefit decisions on the income of the disabled individual. Monthly benefits are paid to people who become disabled and are approved by the program. In order to qualify for the SSDI program, the disabled worker must prove that he or she has worked a set amount of time in a job in which Social Security (FICA) taxes are paid. Workers who qualify for SSDI benefits can receive work credits depending on his or her age when the disability took place. Medical eligibility is also assessed for benefits through SSDI.
