If one recently was disabled and is on Medicare can they get a credit card now?

According to the Equal Opportunity Credit Act, your disability will not stop you from getting a credit card. If you have stopped working as a result, however, the lack of enough income may prevent you from getting a credit card.

If you have verifiable income from other sources (e.g., investments, alimony, etc.), you may incorporate that income into the total and may qualify for the card.
