I have only worked jobs here and there threw the years and when I got sick 7 years ago I had just lost a job because I missed to much work because of this Illness. Does anyone know if I can claim SS Disability if its been 7 years since I have been employed? I always thought I'd go back to work ,you know I thought I'd get well enought. Well 7 years later I am faceing the fact I will not be able to work things are just getting worse with my pain. My husband makes good money but we are getting older and if he got sick or something happen I would have no income.Does anyone know if I can claim SS disability now because of my Illness ? I do not want the stress of being alone and not haveing my own income to servive .Old age stinks when you have to be preparied to face the life changeing things before you want to.But Id rather know these things before hand.Ive mostly been a stay home mom I dont think I can claim SS for that ???????
