Good evening Jesse,
I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
First of all, from one veteran to another, thank you for your service to our country!
If you are 70, you should be receiving social security retirement by now. Now, it is possible that you are receiving a social security retirement benefit and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) as well, but SSI is welfare and you would have to have income of less than about $800 per month to be eligible for SSI.
As for social security disability (SSDI), this is a benefit that only people less than full retirement age (for social security retirement) are eligible for and today that maximum age is 66 year old. So unfortunately, regardless of your medical condition, because you are over the age of 66, you would not be eligible to receive social security disability benefits. So no Sir, you are not qualified to receive social security disability benefits.

I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. As I am not an employee of JustAnswer, please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am compensated for assisting you. Thank you in advance.
I wish you and yours the best in 2016,
