Taxes have been held out of my earnings but I haven't filed in several years.
If your earnings have been reported, you should be receiving the quarters for coverage that you'd need to file for SSDI. If you're an employee that has paid taxes on your income to the federal government, you may have coverage even if you haven't filed a return. (It's a different story if you're self-employed.)
Filing taxes is also important so that your SSDI benefits (if approved) aren't intercepted by the IRS. But it's possible to be covered even if you haven't filed taxes.
