Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Social security disability must be based on your own records, not your spousal records. You may be eligible for spousal benefits once you reach 62.
You do not need all 40 credits to apply for disability as long as you have at least 20 credits earned in the ten years immediately before you become disabled.
If you work for state you may be eligible for some states disability benefits.
