Topic: Approved for Soc. Security disability

I retired from work on Thursday, and on Saturday was approved for SSD.  I was surprised that the disability came through so quickly.  I didn't even have an interview with a social worker. 

The SSD money comes through in October, but in the meanwhile I will be getting money from my disability insurance through my employer. 

Friday night my co-workers had a wonderful retirement party for me.  I was really blessed to work with such wonderful people.  It's hard to leave.  But in the meantime, I'm going to work once in a while there on an on-call, as-needed basis until my replacement gets up to speed.

I'm surprised how smoothly everything has turned out.  I thank God that He continues to surprise me with His provision.  Blessed be the name of the Lord!

I'm so glad for you Lisa.  It's wonderful when things sometimes surprise us when they go smoothly.  I hope it continues for a long time.

Lisa, I'm so delighted for you that your retirement went through and the SSD came through immediately with no problems for you to handle.  Daily miracles, Lisa, and so appreciative when they arrive.  God Bless You and your family, Lisa.

Hi Lisa,

I am so glad you've had a relatively smooth process with the Social Security -- that can be such a nasty process to navigate.

I am sure your feelings are so mixed about retiring -- I think It's great that you'll be on-calling for a bit but takes the pressure off of you.

Take care of yourself.
