This answer was rated:

I am 62 years old and I am very obese 425lbs because of a blown out lower back and torn knee cartilage that has forced me to be idle and sit. the pain is extremely terrible. I could not work outside of the house and then it would have to be in front of the computer. I have in the past been self employed buying real estate, owning businesses and working on long term deals that come and go. Therefore I never paid myself and my social security contributions had been from my younger days of working and paying. I probably stopped contributing around 29 years of age.

Can I collect social security disability and how much would that be a month, if so.

Thank you in advance for your answer.
