What is Social Security Disability?
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides monthly benefits to workers who meet the Social Security disability requirements defined by the Social Security Administration. Social Security Disability Benefits (SSDB) provides monthly income until you have recovered fully from your injury or sickness, or have not reached full retirement age, depending on your date of birth. When you reach retirement age, you would automatically begin receiving your regular Social Security benefits. If you pass away and have minor children who are still in school, they would be entitled to receive benefits on your account until they reach age 19 or graduate from high school, whichever comes first.
