Drawing SSD from Spouse credits

Drawing SSD from Spouse credits

March 12, 2009 by Guest

I am 29 yrs old and unable to work due to chronic illness. I cannot walk more than 200 yrds. my doctor says I will not be able to resume work and am disabled permanently. However, I have been married since 19 (over ten years now) and was told I do not have enough credits for SSD. However my husband makes about 50,000 a year and so I cannot get SSI. I have been disabled for almost 4 yrs now and we are sinking financially from medical bills. I was told recently that I could get SSD based on my husband's work credits. Is this true? I can't find any concrete info on this but I have seen it mentioned.

Can I use my husbands credits to qualify for SSD?
