4 Signs that SSDI may be right for you

What is SSDI?

SSDI, or Social Security Disability Insurance, is a benefit program that rewards you in your time of need with the funds and care that you have already worked for, earned, and saved. SSDI is one of two disability programs offered through Social Security. SSDI draws from funds that have been removed from your paychecks in the past. The longer you have worked in the past, the more quarters of coverage you have earned. This coverage, which is what makes the SSDI program possible, is meant to be there for you when you are disabled and no longer able to work to provide for yourself and your family. "Check writing"

Is SSDI right for you?

If you are reading this because you have recently found that you can no longer provide for your family due to an accident that left you disabled, we welcome you and invite you to read through the various resources we offer. We know that this is a hard time in your life, and we want to help you in any way we can.

If you are worried about any of the following, please keep reading to see what we can do to help you become informed and ensure that you are approved for the assistance that you deserve:

  • Living with a disability that keeps you from living the life that you used to
  • Feeling fear and anxiety about how your inability to work impacts your self-worth
  • Wondering how you’ll pay your bills and get medical treatment
  • What your inability to work will do to your roll as a provider, in your marriage, in your church church, and in society

If you said “yes” to worrying about any of the points above, then SSDI may be right for you.
