SSDI funds will likely be depleted by 2016

According to the annual report by the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Board of Trustees, the trust fund that supports the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program could be depleted by 2016, US Finance Post reported on July 29.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew suggested that more income from taxes be directed at disability benefits to help keep the Social Security disability insurance program afloat. Lew stated that changes need to be made immediately, to avert disaster in the future.

The anticipated financial shortage in disability funds make it even more important that those who need it apply for disability benefits as soon as possible.
