I,m receiving SSD for about

I,m receiving SSD for about 11 years. Do I need to report to SSA life insurance I get from my friend death? I know that I need to report any earn money from work etc. but life insurance or any other inheritance?

Hi Arnold,

Hi Arnold,

You should report any additional income to the SSI, but the life insurance won't affect your SSDI benefits.

Best Wishes,

I only worked for three years

I only worked for three years and then became a stay home mom. I became a paraplegic three years ago. Obviously I don't have enough earned benefit! Can I qualify for SSDI through my husband?

Hi Annika,

Hi Annika,

I am so sorry to hear that. You could collect under your husband if he is already on SSDI.

However, just because you don't have a strong work history doesn't meant that you can't qualify for disability benefits. I would recommend filling out our Free Disability Evaluation and see if you can qualify:http://www.disability-benefits-help.org/form/free-disability-evaluation

Hi Joanne,

Hi Joanne,

It will not affect your children's SSDI, however it could affect your SSI.
