The Social Security Disability (SSD) program is for working people who have suffered an injury that resulted in a disability, contracted a disease, or are suffering from a medical condition that leaves them unable to work. This program gives aid to those in need, and can be thought of as a government insurance program that you have earned by paying into the system each time you received a paycheck. Make no mistake – Social Security Disability (SSD) is not a welfare program; you paid for this insurance through working.
