Diabetes Disability - who pays?

I have a friend (living in the U.S. Southeast) who is not working due to type 1 diabetes. He was recently working the assembly line for a major Japanese automobile manufacturer before diabetes forced him to stop working and now he's on some kind of disability for the rest of his life. Does his employer write his disability checks or the Social Security system or is this unknowable without asking him probing questions?
