HELP FOR DISSABILITY
About This Group:

I wanted to start this group to keep in touch with others and to help or get tips from others about SSDI since there isn't a forum for it. Where are you in the filing process? What have you learned or need to know so we can help each other through the long treacherous process.

HELP FOR DISSABILITY

     My husband was diagnosed with bladder cancer 4 years ago. He works at a major corporation where they produce auto=parts. Anyway since being dianosed with cancer he has been hospitalized more times than I care to count. Several times it has been from fume inhalation, he has a desk job however they found him slummped over his computer, incoherant.  He has undergone cancer treatments for the last few years, he has also been at his job for 20 years, he is 56 years old.  My question is what can we do to get disability? My husband is the sole provider for our family and he went to an attorney and the attorney told him that he had to NOT be working to collect dissability. Our dilemma is without his paycheck we can't survive.

   What bothers me the most is he DESERVES dissability. He works sick, through treatments, never complains but we feel defeated here, does anybody have ANY suggestions for us?  There has to be somebody in this same situation, any help would mean so much to me.

it is my understanding you have to be completely unemployed to get SSDi; that's my mistake I was trying to pay for health insurance and medicine so I worked 5 hours or so a week to pay for it and had to quit completely according to my attny.

they make things so difficult but there is emergency help in each through different foundations and agencies; check out what you have to do for your state

I wish I could be more help; but I'm going through the process also and learning as I go
