    If you have not earned enough credits to qualify for ssdi then you can apply for ssi. It is based on income, assets etc. I have applied and been recently denied. I have worked for school for last 5 years and they did not take out money for ss. Prior to that i had enough credits for ssdi but now i don't. ssi is supplement security income is a welfare program. I guess you don't get that much but anything would help.
    I have been really sick last 6 wks. so haven't responded and not sure what i need to do next. Finding it very hard to deal with right now. I have fm and lupus, right now my lupus is flaring and i am so exhausted.
    Hope things go well for you if you apply!
