What is the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Program?

"The Social Security Disability Insurance Program provides benefits to disabled or blind individuals who are "insured" by workers' contributions to the Social Security trust fund. These contributions are the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) Social Security tax paid on their earnings or those of their spouses or parents. Title II of the Social Security Act authorizes SSDI benefits."
