No one likes to consider the possibility of becoming disabled; yet, the odds of it happening are probably higher than you realize. Studies show that a 20 year old today has a one in five chance of becoming temporarily or permanently disabled prior to reaching retirement age. Whether it is because of a serious workplace accident, a devastating illness, or a tragic car accident, the reality is that you could become disabled tomorrow.
Both the Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, program and the Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, program may be able to help should you become disabled.
