Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, was made to provide income supplements to people who are unable to work because of a disability, usually physical. The SSDI can be supplied as either a temporary or permanent solution, typically depending on whether the disability of the person is temporary or permanent. It does not rely on the income of the person receiving it, unlike with Supplemental Security Income. Any person of any income level can receive SSDI if he or she is legitimately disabled.
The length of the process of getting SSDI would depend on the area where the person lives as well as the severity of their condition, and it is very much a possibility to have a claim rejected and be forced to have a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. On average, a claim may take just around three months to process. The disability benefits don’t usually begin until 5 months after the established onset of the disability.
