Thank you for your question. If you are disabled, you will be able to draw social security benefits now, if you are not disabled then you must wait 10 years until you are 60 to get anything from social security.

I'm truly sorry. You can check for benefits like HUD and SNAP and talk with your area agency on aging to see if there are any local benefits for you.

It's a hard place to be and I wish I had better news for you
