Understanding SSDI and Ticket to Work

Every U.S. worker contributes to Social Security through deductions from their paycheck, including
payments toward Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

However, while most are familiar with the retirement and Medicare benefits associated with Social
Security, fewer understand the vital support SSDI provides to those who are unable to work due to
disability or serious illness. SSDI serves as a crucial safety net, offering income and Medicare benefits to
over 159 million insured workers in the United States.

Yet, despite its importance, awareness about SSDI remains relatively low among the general population.
