Hi there ,
I checked in SSA website about eligibility for SSI. There are seven categories of non–citizens who are qualified aliens. I am interested to know more in one of them .
1-You are a Lawfully Admitted for Permanent Residence (LAPR) with 40 qualifying quarters of earnings. Work done by your spouse or parent(s) may also count toward the 40 quarters of earnings, but only for getting SSI.
We cannot count quarters of earnings earned after December 31, 1996, if you, your spouse, or your parent(s) worked or received certain benefits from the U.S. government based on limited income and resources during that period
What is that means ? the people are not making quarters of earnings with SSA IF they or any family members are getting welfare benefits ?
I am confuse please explain
This is not a question of US immigration law. You need to contact attorneys representing people before SSA.

Please ask you specific question regarding eligibility for SSI or SSDI. There's not enough specific information for me to reply.
