The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program, often called a Title 2 or T2 benefit, is authorized under Title II of the Social Security Act. SSDI provides cash benefits to persons who are disabled or blind and are “insured” by workers’ contributions to the Social Security Trust Fund. These contributions are based on a worker’s earnings or those of the worker’s spouse or parents, as required by the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA). SSDI is funded through the Social Security Trust Fund.
I am social entrepreneur focused on elevating the status of people with disabilities through work. By designing and implementing innovative and sustainable workforce solutions, I help companies engage a diverse talent pool while strategically minimizing the vocational impact of disability.
