SOCIAL SECURITY ISSUES
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federal insurance for people who have worked and paid into social security. It is generally paid to people who cannot work for a year or more due to their disability. There is a five (5) month waiting period to receive SSDI benefits in order to show signs of recovery or correction of the disability. More information regarding SSDI benefits can be found at www.socialsecurity.gov, and eligibility requirements can be found atwww.socialsecurity.gov/retire2/credits3.htm.
