I thought I already created this poll but I don't see it.  Please forgive me if it appears twice.

Me - SSI (but I like to emphasize I DID pay into the system for almost 30 years!).  Then I owned rental properties which is passive income which cannot be reported to SS.  I guess it burns me when it is referred to welfare for that reason.  In my opinion, if you pay enough into SS for retirement, it should be enough for SSDI.  SOME of us did not file and supported ourselves with investments, etc. until we could no longer do so.  Had to lose everything to get any benefits.

On SSDI bu i worked close to 40 years and 30  at my last job they got bought out and goodbye retirement pension. I worked the last 2 years so i could get 30 years. I have Peripheral artery disease so it only took me one year to get approved on the record for blue book listing 4.12b. Never have had a cdr and been on SSDI since 2010  now I’m 64 years old.

Well based on this...a very small number of those on this board, it appears about 1/4 are SSI and 3/4 SSDI.

SSI. I also worked more than 35 years, over 20 public sector while also working a family business. I worked up until I got approved although not at the sga level. Also my work credits had expired and the time I was self employed didn't count.

the time I was self employed didn't count.

Self-employment can count if you file a tax return and determine your profit in the business and pay the FICA taxes (which is twice as much for the self-employed).  It is not that your earnings from your business didn't count, it is that you either didn't file a tax return to report it or you only lost money in your business, you didn't claim a profit.
