Just apply to Social Security and they'll assess the whole situation and will then give a decision - which can be challenged if thought to be unfair.

An education and a job. If a person does not pay into the system, they really do not deserve free money. What did the founders of America do with children with disabilities? They took care of them in their homes. American government is not God Almighty.
