SSDI has a dedicated funding source and is an insurance system--no different than car or house insurance.

SS has a dedicated funding source and is a wealth transfer system. It is far cheaper for each worker than trying to keep the workers's elderly parents living with the family OR on their (elderly parents) own.
========================================

SSDI and SS are the same funding source. Both come from SS tax.

I think we agree that SS tax is 6.2 for the employer and 4.2 for the employee, currently.

Where do you think the SSDI funding is...what tax is it?

I'm pretty sure it's inside the SS tax.
