More details to this question:
I cannot drive due to aspergers. I have not been diagnosed, but am going to the doctor this week. The longest job I've had was a year long, and I have not been able to work in three years. Can I still get disability payments. I was making 7.50/hour at my last job.

Thanks to updates on Social Security's website, you can obtain your "Social Security Statement" online utilizing the "my Social Security online account.  You will:

     Use a "my Social Security" online account to get your Social Security Statement, to review:

  • Estimates of your retirement, disability, and survivors benefits;
  • Your earnings record; and
  • The estimated Social Security and Medicare taxes you’ve paid.

To do so, SSA says "To create an account, you must provide some personal information about yourself and give us answers to some questions that only you are likely to know. Next, you create a username and password that you will use to access your online account. This process protects you and keeps your personal Social Security information private."

To create the account, go to:

When you are done, at the top of page two you will be able to see if you are eligible.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
