Hi Ashley,
If you are of short stature and complications arising from this impede your ability to work, then you may be eligible for benefits.

Hello,

I would recommend going to your local RMV/DMV or to their website to see if you would be qualified for a disability sticker.

Best Regards,
Eric

Stop using the word midget! It's offensive.

Hi Sarah,
Thank you for sharing! We use "people first" terminology site, and 'midget' certainly is not one of those words.

Hi Ethel,
You may need to be ineligible for retirement benefits, however if you're applying for SSI, there is not age limit.

I have been on disability benefit since I was 14 years old and I'm now 36. My learning difficulty is Autism, ADD and hearing impaired. My parents help me get the benefits and it took a few months. I was also on growth hormone therapy for 5 years and now I'm 4"8 and doing Tae kwon do

Best Wishes,

Hi Akshay,
You may want to check with your local government's criteria for that, they can give you detailed information that would be specific to your case.

Hi Jennifer,
You would qualify if conditions associated with your stature make you unable to work.
