Social Security Notice
We have determined that you are not entitled to disability insurance benefits because
you do not meet the earnings requirement of the law.
To qualify for disability benefits a statutorily blind person must have one Social
Security credit for each year elapsing after 1950, or age 21 if that is later, up
to the year he became disabled. A minimum of six credits is needed. The credits may
have been earned at any time. You became disabled on . Thus, you need credits to meet the earnings requirement. Your earnings record shows that you have
only credits. You do not meet the earnings requirement at the time you became disabled
or at any later date.
No benefits may be paid to the wife, husband, or child unless the wage earner or self-employed
person is entitled to disability benefits.
If you believe that this determination is not correct, you may request that your case
be re-examined. If you want this reconsideration, you must request it not later than
60 days from the date you receive this notice. You may make your request through any
Social Security office. If additional evidence is available, you should submit it
with your request.
If you do not request reconsideration of your case within the prescribed time period,
you still have the right to file another application at any time.
If you have questions about your claim, you may get in touch with any Social Security
office. Most questions can be handled by telephone or mail. If you visit an office,
however, please take this letter with you.
