Re: disability

The only way to know is to file for social security (SSI or SSDI) and wait and see. It helps tremendously if your doctor says you are unable to work. Both of you could potentially get SSI if you don't own very much.

Re: disability

If you have only worked 3 years total, you would not qualify for Title 2 benefits, but you could possibly qualify for title 16 which is SSI only. To qualify ofr SSI you have to be proven disabled, and meet financial requirements. But the only way to know for sure is to go apply. But basically you have to have worked enough quarters, and worked 5 out of the last 10 years to qualify for title 2 benefits.
