Social Security Disability Benefits Protect Injured Workers
If you have suffered an injury that prevents you from engaging in your regular line of work, you may qualify to receive federal Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. The SSDI program is a federally-funded program that is administered by the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) that pays benefits to workers who are unable to engage in gainful employment due to sickness or injury. The SSA pays SSDI benefits to workers to the extent that they have been “insured” by the program — that is, the length of time that they have been employed and paid social security taxes. So long as injured workers meet the program’s work credit retirements and can show that their injury will prevent them from working for at least 12 months, they are generally eligible for apply for SSDI benefits.
