SSDI means Social security for disability. This is a benefit that some workers can get once they have a qualification impairment which prevents them from working for more than a year.
These disability benefits allowed workers to have little money until they can't work. Sometimes your disability is not permanent and you overcome it. In other cases, you continue to receive them until you reach full retirement age.
