Social Security Disability Insurance - APDA


Finance, Disability

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a government disability benefit program that is administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA). SSDI benefits are paid on a monthly basis to disabled workers who qualify under the SSA’s rules. SSDI covers total disability, and does not cover partial disability or short-term disability.

Am I covered by SSDI?
Not everyone is covered by SSDI. In addition to meeting the SSA’s definition of disability (discussed below), you must have worked in a job that was covered by Social Security and have accrued enough work credits. Click here to visit to read more about SSDI qualification requirements.
