You have to use all of your state disablity money first ( if your state has one) then get the paperwork from SS fill it all out and have your doctors fill out there reason why you are unable to work fulltime anymore and a close friend or ( I think maybe a family member)also needs to fill out and sign some paperwork. You will also have to go to the local SS office and meet with a specialist who will interview you and then they send the paperwork to another office for approval. The last I knew you can be on SSD and still make up to 800 a month if you are able to work p/t. I def. had god watching over me during all this when I applied, I was approved in two weeks , had to go 6 months with medicare part A only then I was able to get part B,C, and D. I hope this helps some. Also you can always call an attorney for a free consultation and some will give you advice on what to do. ( sorry if I am all over the place I have a bad concussion right now and my symptoms keep gettin worse instead of better)

Depends on how much you make. I tried, but was denied because I make too much $ working part time. Lawyers even told me to give them a call when I was not working anymore. I can't afford to live with my meds and no $ so I still work and struggle through.

Depends on the disability plan you are on. I have private insurance through the school where I teach. I'm still teaching 2 classes a day.

I know when you are on disability you are allowed to make so much a month, so I would think if you are under this limit you should not be denied. It's a catch 22, they do not want to see you working at all, to accept you, but how do you pay for medical or live while waiting?

To this day I don't know why I was approved .I worked @ Ford when I was sent home every time I sneezed . I knew when I went to the doctor they would turn me down . Never happen . A year before a friend finally got disability after a 2 year fight . She had a massive heart attack . Surprised she made it . I do not understand why they turn down some and then approve others . I wish I had better information . Last like another fried told me just continue to look for a better lawyer . some are looking for the biggest pay off before they take on a client .
