Social Security disability insurance is a branch of the Social Security retirement program, and is paid for out of the same Social Security trust fund. You must have worked a certain length of time and paid Social Security taxes in order to be eligible for these disability benefits. Essentially, the Social Security disability insruance program is like an early retirement program for those who become unable to work until Social Security retirement age because of a physical or mental impairment.
