Q. Can I Draw Social Security if I Have Never Worked Full Time?

A. Yes, if you are unable to work at any job for a continuous period of twelve (12) months or more, and you also have financial need, you may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI is a unique program offered by the Social Security Administration specifically designed to provide benefits to individuals who have not worked on a full-time basis. It is possible to be eligible for SSI even if you have worked in the past. To understand the various types of Social Security programs you may qualify for, it is advisable to consult with a qualified lawyer.  Russell Bowling is a Board Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability Law.
