752530 tn?1233519188 I take morphine daily and was working as a paramedic on an ambulance. I know I cant do any meaningful work anymore. I applied for Social Security and was denied, I am at 6 months on my appeal. My lawyer feels sure I will get it eventually. I expect to be denied again and have to go before the Judge. I am getting pretty frustrated on this appeal taking so long. My late husband got his on his first go around and heard in 3 months.

Avatar f tn Have any of you been sucessful in appling for Social Security Diability or Does Social Security not see this as a Disability?
Avatar n tn I don't think you can get social security for hep C which we have (liver disease) but that is just what I've heard. While we are ill we are not completely disabled and not able to do some form of work. I wish we could...I'd stay home on FLMA and get paid. That would be so much better than struggling to come in to work every day. I'm no expert and someone else might come on with opposite news...it is what I've always been told though.
675718 tn?1530033033 today i got in contact with an attorney and they claim that i do not qualify for social security disability because i have not paid enough into social security to qualify for benefits go figure i guess i'll represent myself :)
Avatar m tn Yes I am very familiar with the Social Security evaluation process and Social Security does use the services of outside physicians and psychiatrists to do an evaluation but it should be noted that under Social Security regulations the weight of the evidence of a treating physician or psychiatrist always is greater than that of a Social Security physician or psychiatrist. For more information google "disability secrets" and also go to the Social Security website at ssa.

Avatar n tn I was approved for Social Security Disability in February of 2008. It has truly been a lifesaver for me. My psych doc and my family doctor had to fill out a lot of forms, and it took nearly a year for approval. I am bi-polar (depression heaviest) and also suffer from many physical illnesses brought on by my mental illness. I believe they ARE fair, and if your doctors are supporting your quest, approval will happen.
Avatar n tn To even be considered for Social Security Disability, your doctor would have to submit a statement stating that you are unable to perform work of any type due to your back issues (and any other medical and/or psychological problems you may have).
Avatar m tn Social Security Disability (SSD, sometimes called SSDI for Income at the end) is based on how much money you have earned over 10 units (years) so you would not be eligible for that. However, they have Social Security Income (SSI) available for people with disabilities or retired. It is a very limited income, usually about $700 -$800 a month, but you would be eligible for Medicaid (medicine is 2 - 4 dollars, WOW - I pay $600 a month), food stamps, section 8 housing.
Avatar n tn m 10 times worse. I am on long term disability and I am waiting for a hearing with Social Security disablilty.Not only do I suffer with chronic pain, but I'm also battling severe depression. Depending on the problems you have you should qualify. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Every time my husband get a good positive job, he ends up losing it because of this disease and this is getting to be a bit depressing and discouraging for the both of us. Can he apply for disability benefits and get it or do you feel that maybe the social security people do not know of this terrible disease and we as a whole should go and let them know that this is a disability and show all documentation on this disease so they can help the ones who really need help for this disease.
Avatar n tn Should I be checking into Social Security Disability for my son who has scoliosis and a syrinx in his thoracic spine from T3 to T10? Someone on another site that has a foundation said it is a good idea to. Did anyone have success with this? I don't want this for my son, but if he is going to need it I want to start early since it can take a long time.
706250 tn?1232453817 Are you asking about social security disability? From what I understand here and on my womenheart board, the process is extremely slow and excruciatingly precise. Don't look for anything to happen right away - the norm seems to be 3-4 years. If you have the resources you may want to consider hiring an attorney to help the paperwork process- that seems to speed it up a bit. If anyone out there knows differently, please speak up. I have not been through the SSDI process personally.
767538 tn?1276575320 I for one do not receive social security benefits but will probably be applying for them at some point in the next few years I would imagine. I'm looking for people's SSDI 'stories' if anyone feels comfortable sharing. This information will be very helpful to a lot of people and I thank anyone in advance for responding to this post.
Avatar f tn Has anyone been on Long Term Disability when Social Security Disability has been approved?
Avatar f tn As I was losing so much time at work I decided to file for my disability insurance which demands you request social security disability. I am now 30 months into the system with worsening symptoms and still just got denied by the judge in my social security case. I am at my wits end. I have now been without insurance for a year and need the medicare. I am 56 years old, so it should be obvious that I am not trying to "work" the system.
Avatar n tn he will have to go threw the social security takes about 12 monthes..mine was 18 monthes the shrink didnt turn in the paperwork..
Avatar f tn I do not qualify for disability payments through the social security department (I was a public school teacher) but I was told by my social security case worker that I could qualify for Medicare because I am a Medically Qualified Government Employee. I have not worked in five years, received a short term disability payout and am now collecting a pension that is labeled 'disability pension' through CalSTRS and is substancially larger due to my confirmed MS disability.
