Does WORK CREDITS requirements stop at 1st application or current. (apply @ 18, so just need enough for age 18)

Do i need to regain WORK CREDITS then reapply?

I applied 2 times. I had more than enough work credits at time of applying. But somehow i now dont have enough time.

1st application = i had 2 extra years (working since 16, social security starts counting @ 18)

2nd application = approved approx 2.5 years later for SSI not both SSDI/SSI (only paid for current application)

DISABLED @ 18 can t work (head injury = seizures; cognitive disorder = slowed processing from seizures/medication) (safety concerns, transportation, education, speed capabilities)

___

cant live off of <$800 (cost of rent) currently living with friends, helping with food and $300. They are moving another state, no family.

Rent starts at $750 in my area then utility/food/clothes/DEBTS... (welfare helps food/medical, but CASH is still not enough) growing debts, living off credit cards

my cost of living is <$300 (food, clothes, outerwear, hygiene, public transportation...) then cost of rent $800 and basic utilities $75+
