In April 2004 while working at my job in North Olmsted, Ohio I was sexually assaulted by another employee who ended up being a prior sex offender, and because of a failed proper background check he was hired. I had to endure a grueling sexual assault that fractured my jaw so now its crooked, damaged my nose (broke) so now it has excessive cartilage scarring, herniated discs from my neck down to my tail bone, and my tail bone was broken so it now protrudes. I had to go through the process of convicting this person, who plead guilty, which was so difficult because he threatened to murder me and my children if I went through with the court proceedings, so of course I lived in fear and still do.

The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a federal insurance program, administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA). It provides monthly financial benefits to the disabled workers. The SSDI benefits are given to those workers who become disabled before the age of retirement and are unable to work for 12 months or more owing to their disability. The benefits are received 5 months after the onset of the disability.
The SSDI also pays the benefits to the eligible family members of a disabled worker. Noncitizens that are legally staying in the United States can also get the SSDI benefits. So what are the eligibility criteria, benefits, and the advantages of getting the SSDI benefits?
