    I know you were a bit concerned b/c of your young age. It's typically a bit more difficult to be approved at such a young age, but if you have your Dr's support, it's not impossible. I applied when I was your age and was eventually approved after roughly 4 years. It was a very long wait, but the judge set my effective date back to when I was in my late 20s. If you've been working since 15, you'll probably have enough credits, but call SSA to be sure. If you feel this is the only option, just apply soon, before you no longer have enough credits to do so.

    You need to look at your Social Security Statement, which is issued to everyone once a year. If you don't have the statement, go to SSA.gov and request for it to be re-issued. It will tell you whether you have earned enough work credits, lifetime, to qualify for SSD.
