I know there is a program through the Social Security Administration for those who have never paid into SS. We had an aunt on the program.

Hi, this topic came up higher up above on the board under "Success Stories" topic is titled, I think "Social Security."
There are two benefit programs for the diabled under SS- SSI & SSDI. I know more about SSI since I have 2 disabled adult children who qualify under this program.
If you go to their website, there is a wealth of information.
Hope this is helpful, Carla

sorry everyone but i know from helping a friend of mine with ssd and ssi. her husband worked and she had never worked if you are married yes you can draw ssd or ssi. they will kind of like loan you his credits but yet you want get as much as he would but yet it doesnt take any from him either. but yes it can be done as long as you are married.

thank you every one,
yes I am married so will my husband have to come with me? and if I get ssd and something happened to him he could still get ssd to?
not that I'm saying anything will happen.

Your husband does not have to go with you. And if something should happen to your husband, what you would get is your benefit, plus a portion of his benefit --- so the total would be equal to what he would get. That's the way the Social Security folks explain it. So if you are eligible for $500 and your husband is eligible for $600 --- if anything would happen to him, you would still get your $500, plus $100 of his benefit so your total would be $600 (his eligible amount). I learned this when my father-in-law died.
