Q: Good morning, my name is Wayne, and I'm trying to get on social security disability because of a few illnesses
I'm HIV positive, since August of 2013
Mental illness for Bipolar disorder, Manic depression, severe anxiety, insomnia since 2008 and lower back pain since 2010 do to a accident. What should I do? I applied and was denied, and I have the paperwork for my denial claim bit I didn't know there was a deadline to appeal it? Can you please give me advice?
Couple things I didn't mention and this is off topic, but I have been being harassed by property management for racism, my sexual orientation for being gay. Discrimination, etc. I don't know what to do to this point.
A: You will need to consult with a Social Security Disability attorney about your specific case. Justia is for a general response, a starting off point. You are well beyond that. A simple internet search for SSDI attorneys near you will get you the contact information of attorneys than can advise you.
A: With regard to your harassment issues, a good place to start is the Dept. of Fair Employment & Housing. dfeh.ca.gov/complaint-process/file-a-complaint/
Depending on circumstances, an attorney might also be interested in representing you on those claims.
