You may apply but you must meet the asset requirements for SSI benefits as this is the type of application it will be (Supplemental Security Income).   The following is from the Social Security Administration website (

"Anyone who is:
aged (age 65 or older);
blind; or
And, who:
has limited income; and
has limited resources; and
is a U.S. citizen or national, or in one of certain categories of aliens; and
In general, an alien who is subject to an active warrant for deportation or removal does not meet the citizenship/alien requirement.
is a resident of one of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, or the Northern Mariana Islands; and
is not absent from the country for a full calendar month or  for 30 consecutive days or more; and
applies for any other cash benefits or payments for which he or she may be eligible, (for example, pensions, Social Security benefits); and
gives SSA permission to contact any financial institution and request any financial records about you; and
files an application; and
meets certain other requirements."

If your date last insured (DLI) is after the ALJ's date of decision then you can reapply while your Fed case goes on by using a new disability date the is after the Judge's decision date but before your insurance (credits) expired.

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.
