If you are drawing SSDI, you have to have proven a permanent disability that prevents holding a job of any kind. Are you really trying to tell us that you "qualify" for SSDI, but do not draw SSDI? How, then, would you know that you qualify? Did you go through all of the application procedure, medical examininations, and review of records just to NOT draw the benefits. If you have not been through the process, on the other hand, you don't know if you qualify or not, as benefit awards are decided on a case by case basis.
