Social Security is essential to many Americans. The Social Security Administration (SSA) reported that over 69 million people received benefits in 2019. Nearly 90% of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) received payments because of blindness or other disability.

Past work experience
You may need to demonstrate that you have worked consistently for 5–10 years and paid Social Security taxes.
