Social Security Disability Insurance exclusions are bankrupting and killing us.

Stop The Wait is the movement of Americans fighting to end these exclusions.

COVID-19 is forcing thousands out of work and on to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Many of us have disabilities that will prevent us from working again.

SSDI is a lifeline that we depend on to pay rent and buy food.

But the current system denies us SSDI for the first five months after we get sick, insurance benefits we have earned.

These exclusion periods are bankrupting and killing us. In the last 10 years, 110,000 people have died while waiting for disability insurance.

We’re telling Congress: End the five-month SSDI exclusion.
