Hi Ernesto,
If your wife is unable to earn a living due to her stature and medical complications from it, she may be eligible for benefits.

Hi Shayne,

You may be able to. You can fill out a form online at the SSA's website or go to your local SSA office to find out.

I don't know if I'm consider a midget because I'm exactly 4'10. Can someone tell me if I'm consider a midget or no?

Hi Deborah,

If you are simply 4'11 and do not have a disability, you will not qualify for benefits.

Hi Catherine,

Your height alone, won't automatically qualify you for Social Security benefits.

Hi Courtney,

I am sorry to hear that. You can't get Social Security for your height alone, but the other conditions like scoliosis or depression could qualify you for Social Security.
