What Is Social Security Disability Insurance?This is an insurance program for workers who become unable to work. The Social Security Administration (SSA) is responsible for the operation and administration of this fund. Moneys for this fund come from “FICA” tax withheld from workers’ pay and employer contributions. People who have worked and paid FICA tax for at least five of the ten years prior to onset of their disability are usually covered. Dependent upon age, others may be qualified to receive benefits with fewer years of work. Eligibility in Pennsylvania and throughout the country is dependent upon three factors:
- You must be able to prove to the Social Security Administration that you cannot perform your job because of your disability.
- The SSA must decide that you cannot do another kind of work, either, because of your disability.
- Your disability must be one that will last, or is expected to last, 12 months or longer.
