Social security benefits are based on working record ONLY.

There is no additional benefits based on health condition after FRA - which is between 65 and 67 for retirees based on their year of birth.

Disability benefits are available only for those below FRA.

Only if income is below certain level - the person may qualify for SSI - supplemental security income.

If there are additional medical expenses including additional assistance - we may apply for Medicaid.
