What is the difference between SSDI and VA benefits?
SSDI is an insurance program that replaces a portion of earnings for an insured worker whose illness or injury, which is not necessarily work-related, results in an inability to perform any substantial gainful activity. The program is funded through payroll taxes paid under the Federal Insurance Contributions Act or the Self-Employment Contributions Act. VDC is not insurance. It is a compensation program that pays benefits to veterans who develop medical conditions that are related to their military service. The program is funded through a mandatory appropriation under the VA budget rather than from contributions by veterans or active military personnel.
