Understanding the SSD Program
The Social Security Act established a system of old-age benefits for workers, benefits for victims of industrial accidents, unemployment insurance, aid for dependent mothers and children, the blind, and the physically handicapped.
The SSD program is an important element of the Social Security system, especially when considering that one in four Americans will become disabled before they are old enough to retire. Those who become disabled before reaching the retirement age may be eligible tor SSD benefits.
Benefits may be available to those who are unable to work due to a wide variety of physical and mental health conditions, including but not limited to the following:
-Neck and/or back pain
-Complications from Diabetes
