No, there are more ways to get access to free SSDI information. Type Social Security
Death Index into Google and up will come up several options. Even in the paid
subscription ones SSDI is free. Oddly enough all though they basically have the same
info, on occasion one can find a person who is not in one SSDI in another so try
others if you don't find your person the first time.
Also, if the person is not on the SSDI it is possible he/she did not have any
benefits passed to a family member ergo there would be no listing.
Hope this helps.

The only way to do a free search of SSDI is through Steve Morse's search
engine (which of course is terrific) that takes us to Genealogy.com. Does anyone
know how current SSDI is on this website? I'm searching for people who died
in the last 3 years and they do not seem to be on there. Thank you. Happy
holidays and Happy New Year! Selma
