Payroll taxes are the main source of funding for Social Security Disability benefits. SSD benefits are available to those who have worked for a certain number of years and have made the necessary contributions to the Social Security trust fund through various taxes. However, the Social Security Administration also administers disability benefits through another program-Supplemental Security Income.
Once California residents have finally completed their Social Security Disability benefits applications, submitted them, gotten them approved and begun receiving SSD benefits, they might think their hard work has paid off and they are now at the end of the road. However, the Social Security Administration conducts periodic reviews, ensuring only those people who are disabled receive SSD benefits. News of a review may overwhelm recipients, but most often, there is nothing to worry about.
