Hi I got my SSI (Supplemental Security Income) the second try. It was much easier than those that have applied for SSD. I didn't qualify for the SSD because i didn't work enough to get enough credits or whatever they're called, so you might want to see if your family's income qualifies you for it. I wish you the best.
