You can use the online application to apply for benefits if you:
•are age 18 or older;
• are not currently receiving benefits on your own Social Security record;
•have worked and paid Social Security taxes long enough to qualify; and
•have a medical condition that has prevented you from working or is expected to prevent you from working for at least 12 months or end in death.
I copied and pasted this from the SS website. I have not personally applied for SSD, but since I am aware that it may happen soon I have been looking into it.
Hope this helps.
Take care, Fran
