You can possibly get private disability (if you have that coverage) but you can not get both Social Security Disability and SSI at the same time. In fact if you receive a back award for SSD for a period while you are on SSI, they will deduct what was paid to you during SSI period from any retroactive payments of SSD.
Usually yes. You should apply and see if you are qualified and for what amount.
