    I have applied for disability. I did the online app and the online questionaire, submitted my bcerts for me and my 2 children.

    My question is, in the adult worksheet, there was a thing that said "you may be eleigible for your disability/retirement benefits through your spouse. We may ask for proof of your marriage..." it said something like that.

    Does anyone know what the qualifications are for one to qualify for disability u nder your spouse?

    THanks!

    look it up under benefits...section...i forgot already if you are married or not or divorced...if you are over the age of 50 and disabled you can draw off from your spouses...looke it up on the ssa.gov..my mind is fading badly here...
