Frequently Asked Questions
(click a question to read the answer)

What is "SSDI" or "SSI"?

SSDI stands for Social Security Disability Insurance. Employers are required by federal law to deduct a percentage of an employee's total pay and send it to the Social Security Disability Fund. Should the employee become disabled, is unable to work, makes a social security disability claim and is approved for Social Security for disability payments, the money is paid out of the social security disability fund.
