Topic: Social Security Disability You can apply on line or local office
I Just wanted all to know that SSDI should be applied for as soon as you start chemo and unable to work anymore. It takes about 2 hours to fill out the paper work or on line application. I guess I'm saying that if your unable to work due to pain ,sickness, anxiety, medications, memory problems from chemo and other meds. you should apply as it is money that you have payed in or credits earned for paying in during past the years. It is retroactive from date of application up to 12 months and could be a considerable amount. I have actually seen a few cases where people did not know or could not be bothered and lost 15-17 thousand dollars in retro back pay. It's primariy base on credits earned , date you became unable to work, and copy of medical records verifying condition. This disease and all of It's complication is enough to keep many from being able to work. My public announcement for the day.
God Bless ,
