Houston, TX asked in Consumer Law, Social Security, Civil Rights and Constitutional Law for Texas

Q: I have a statement showing I have/had the 40 required amount of work credits needed to be eligible for SSDI

I made $20,000+yr for years until my health decline making my income drop significantly. I applied for benefits and I have been given misinformation, denied continuously,lied to, told my condition is not as severe as I think I is, have errors in case file, and more but yet has conditions and medical proof of evidence that protects my rights described in the Americans with disabilities act and prove I have been wrongfully discriminated against by the ssa. Lawyers will not take my case so will not accept replays about speaking to any kind of lawyer firm or representatives. Please straight up answer on if I have a good argument my income went from #20,000+yr to $3,000yr to $5,000yr to $0yr

A: You haven’t provided enough information for anyone to tell you if you have a good case or not. You also aren’t clear about whether you are wanting to obtain disability benefits or sue the SSA for discrimination. If you have already provided detailed information to several lawyers and they have told you that you don’t have a good case, then that may be the answer. It’s very unlikely you will find anyone who would sue SSA for discrimination. You may be able to find an attorney to help you with obtaining disability benefits. Qualifying for protection under the ADA isn’t really relevant to qualifying for benefits from SSA.
