My mom came to the US in 2016. In 2017 she's got a good job elderly care services. All of a sudden she couldn't do her job because of her physical condition. We found out that back in her country she was on disability program already. She had two strokes in 1995 and in 2007, three breast surgeries (cancer), osteoporosis etc..
She is a green card holder, have an alien number, and SSN. Here is my question: Does my mom qualify for disability?

My mother is incapable of working she has mental problems can she recieve disability? she doesn’t get along well with others she can’t even when she tries. She is kind of illiterate and me and my sister both think she should apply for disability before we loose everything and become homeless for the third time. I really think my mom is mentally disabled and without social security she will probably end up homeless. I am 17 years old with a 2yeat old baby please help

Hi Amber,

She could be able to qualify for SSI benefits. To apply, you would have to schedule an appointment at your local SSA office.

Hi Roberta,

If you are looking for financial help for your mother, she may qualify for Disability Benefits. SSDI is based on work credits that she has gained throughout her life. If she has worked and is no longer able to due to her physical condition, this would make her a candidate for Disability Benefits.
If you would like to be put in contact with an attorney who can help you with the process, fill out the following link:

Hope this helps.
