Ask Rusty – Why Can’t I Get Social Security Disability on My Own or My Husband’s Record?

April 20, 2023 | Presenting: Russell Gloor - AMAC Foundation Social Security Advisor

Dear Rusty: I am considered disabled by State of Washington doctors, but Social Security has turned me down three times when I applied for disability saying I don’t have enough work points. I am the wife of a retired, disabled veteran who served over 20 years in the US Navy. I raised three children, one of which is disabled. How do I get Social Security to accept my disability? Signed: Frustrated & Disabled
