Disability Insurance is often called Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Title II benefits. It is also sometimes referred to by the more inclusive name, Retirement, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (RSDI) benefits. The SSDI benefit amount is based on payments previously made into the system by a worker who has become disabled. (The benefit amount is based, that is, on the worker's earnings record.)
WorkWORLD also includes the Disability Insurance that an individual can get as a Disabled Adult Child of someone who has paid into the system.
