Ssd-Didn't Qualify Because Of Age?


scscrewed

Question

When I was first injured I applied for SSD, but I was told I didn't qualify because of my age --19 at the time. I have the letter from the social security office stating this, and I believe this isn't true. It told me to apply for MRDD services, which I did, and I received help from them, but I want to apply for SSD.

Are the work credits that I am required to have based off the age at the time of disabling injury --19-- or based off my age now?

Are there accumulated work credits that fall between the age of 19 and your current age ?

If yes - what was the last month and year of earned wages ?

I was paralyzed August 03, 2003, but stayed in the military until stabled and MEB, which was April 2004, and April 2004 was the last month of income I had. So, I was 20 by a month. But, once I was discharged from the military I have never had another job or filed taxes or done anything of the sort, except for awhile I drove my family nuts at the farm stand, but they don't pay you for that biggrin.gif

You were eligible but would have collected against your father's SS benefit rate at the time. Until age 22yrs a claimant collects against the father's benefit. Sound's like they made an error. Whether you could win is another matter. If it were me I'd certainly try. Generally decisions become final w/SS after 4yrs. This sounds like a CUE, if SS has such a thing and if so should be appealable. jmo

To get SSD you need a certain number of quarters worked where you paid SSA out of your check. This may be the problem, but I would see the SSD lawyer to make sure. SSA will tell you anything to get rid of you. If not eligible for SSD/Medicare would you be eligible for medicade?

john - Anyone under the age of 22yo, not meeting the number of required quarters, receives benefits against their father's SS account. I should have clarified that in my previous post. Thanks for mentioning the quarters requirement, thereby reminding me.
