Social Security Disability Insurance: A Primer

Research Report

For most U.S. workers and their families, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides protection against a key source of economic insecurity-the loss of earnings due to disability. Today, 9.3 million Americans-disabled workers, their spouses, and dependent children-rely on SSDI to replace lost wages. This primer provides an overview of the SSDI program, including who is covered, what benefits they receive, how the program is administered, and how it is financed. (24 pages)
