This irritates me as a Govt worker, even though I don't work in disability. If you don't qualify due to age then you don't qualify. It's not about your level of disability. People like you that just keep applying when you don't meet the basic eligibility are the reason other people's claims take months to be processed. You tie up the system wasting everyone's time. I'm sorry you have a disability and mobility issues, but follow the rules like everyone else. Wait until you're the eligible age and then re-apply.
You obviously don't know how ssi and ssd work. I was on ssi since I was 10 years old, so being too young is not the issue. The real issue is social security not guiding people to the correct forms to fill out based off your situation. They don't help people unless they already know what they are talking about and the way social security works.
Have you worked? Maybe you're accidentally applying for the wrong type of benefit. Disability benefits are given to people who have work history. Supplemental security income is for people who need help without work history. I know what you mean though, I'm in a wheelchair, if someone bumps into me, I break a bone.... yet they still ask me every year if my permanent disability has resolved. 🤣
