There is nothing to stop you from applying for Social Security disability based on your learning disability; however, it is not likely that you will qualify because you are able to work, though probably not a job that you would like to work at.

I suggest you ask an attorney that handles SS disability. I answer employment law questions. My understanding is they you have to be incapable of working any where. You say "hard for me to find a good job " That is not the same as finding any job. If I am right, you do not qualify for SS disability. Ask a SS lawyer.

That is a possibility. Other factors include other impairments, age, education and work history.

Probably not, although it is possible. Social Security disability is generally for people who can't work at all. You learning disability does not cause you to be able to be unemployable. For example, you can be hired as a ditch digger. So I do not think Social Security can be used.
