I'm Anne & I've been preparing taxes for 28 years. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

HI

As long as you meet the requirements for Social Security Benefits, which is based on 10 years of work (see below) you will qualify for retirement benefits:

Since you are receiving Medicare, you might want to look at the following:

While these links give good information, I think you would benefit more by going to your local SS office, and speak to a representative re: your SSA benefits. They should be able to pull your work records, and tell you the $ amount of benefits you qualify for.

If you are, or were, married, you may be eligible for spousal benefits also.

Do you have follow up questions I can help you with? Do you want/need more information than I provided in my answer?
