Possibly. You can collect Social Security disability benefits under a parent's earnings record if you are determined to be disabled before age 22, even if you have never worked.

At 18, you are no longer eligible to receive dependent benefits unless you are still in high school, in which case you would be able to receive payments through the end of the school year or until two months after your 19th birthday, whichever occurs first. You may also be entitled to back benefits if you qualified to collect payments while living with your disabled parent, but never applied.

If you are disabled and have little or no income and few assets, you may be able to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and other forms of federal and state aid, however.

Since your question is lacking a few important details, it would be a good idea to call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 or visit the local field office and explain your situation to a representative. If you do qualify for benefits (either monthly or a lump sum back payment), the sooner you act the better.
