Secrets to Winning Your SSI or SSD Claim
dancer86442 posted:
Time, Patience, Persistence!

I found this out when I filed for Disability last yr.

1. If you have a child, the cut-off for filing for Them is age 19. They will not be compensated for Prior Seizures if They File after they are 19.
2. For SS, you must have a certain number of work credits. (If not enough, You Will have to have a Statement from your DRS about WHY!)
3. If married, getting your benefits for Disability will depend on Spouses Income/Insurance Status & Assets. 1 House & 1 car are Not considered Assets. Anything Over that Is. Income must be Less than $2000 a Mth.

Aloha candi,

I got my SSI on the first try brcasue I happedto have all the ti ght st uff.

you have to have all the names of your docs the te s ts they ran and when, what for, the dates etc This was in Feb of of then of 03 and I got all my money retroactive back from 03 in June.

They DO call all teh docs and check all this stuff so you have to be HONEST with them. sometimes theycheck up up with bussiness cardes as well becasue they aslo need the addressesof these docs as well.

It is VERY hard to get and most people get turned down the first try. Now I am headed for SSDI here in Oahu to see what they say, since theszs are so unprectible and can not ever drive ever again.
