Social Security Disability

The usual abbreviation is SSDI (Social Security Disability Income).

Are you sure about the asset limits for SSDI? I know there are earnings limits, but I'm not aware of any limits on how much money one can have.

Don't confuse SSDI with SSI (Supplemental Security Income). The former is disability benefits based on the combination of one's work history and inability to work because of physical condition. The latter is a welfare program for people without earnings histories.

Both programs are administered by the Social Security Administration. If you can't get the info you need from try their 800 number. I hear they're really responsive.
