The stalling tactics that they force people to go through needs to be outlawed.

Their old dinosaur ways of doing things should be banned and the whole blasted system should be overhauled so that when people in the future file for SSI or SSDI, things can be sped up and go more smoothly.

Corey, did you see the link I posted?

Social Security Disability Coalition
There are links to several rsources there as well.

I would call ssi, & check on the status of your case, and again, if necessary, get an attorney now, as Jenny & I both mentioned.

Here is another link, I hope will be helpful. Good luck.

Supplemental Security Income

Thanks. Yes I did.

It was just this past Monday when I got their response after sending them an e-mail about a week ago. Sounds also like they still have yet to receive and go over my medical files.

I'll try to find out again mid winter. Too bad that I didn't sign up in August. I might have been getting it next month.

And I really can't get a lawyer yet because I haven't been denied yet. Sorry to say, this, to them, is standard operating procedure. And a lawyer will probably ask the first thing; "Were you denied yet?".

But I saved the info that you gave me for future references.

Corey, if you ever decide to raise some cash by selling some of your kitchen appliances on eBay...I'd bid on them..

The ones that I would sell are very old. I don't even think eBay would help sell them.

That may be true, but what about grease buildup and yellowing?

I should hopefully be approved for disability insurance. I've only heard about one person being turned down for heart failure.

Most are turned down mainly for when they are mentally challenged. I know one person whose mom told me that he was turned down about three times before he was accepted. Same with someone else I know.

I think you mean disability benefits. You can't get insurance when you are already disabled.

They call it SSDI or SSI, which means Social Security Disability Insuranse and Suplimental Security Insuranse. But you're right, it's still a BENEFIT.

Almost like UEI, which means unemployment insuranse. DI and UEI both depend on you having worked one or more jobs over a period of time.
