Re: Question about disability
Kimmie, To be eligible for SSDI you have to have a certain number of work credits over the past ten years and also qualify as disabled (unable to work). If you do not have enough work credits, then you need to apply for SSI.
SSI is awarded based on financial need if you can't work and do not have enough work credits to make you eligible for SSDI. If you or your husband make too much money (not sure how much) then you will not be elegible for SSI.
Your husbands income does not matter for SSDI but does matter for SSI.
I hope this helps.
