I'm sorry for the impact this injury has had upon your life. You chose categories that make sense for injury/disability. But you mention the Industrial Commission of Arizona. If this involves an injury that occurred in the course of your employment, and you had a workers' compensation attorney at...Read more »
I would call the local Social Security Administrative office in your area. I would not reapply until you speak with them. You shouldn't have to apply again if you have an approval letter. It can sometimes take weeks and even several months to receive payment.
I've never dealt with this and I really need the help I haven't been able to hold a job in over a year for more than a month I'm not very good with computers and I'm currently living in a really unhealthy living situation bc of my diagnosis and judgmental parents and zero income I just really need...

We always suggest that you apply for SSDI and see if you are eligible. Please keep in mind, the process is tedious and can take as little as 3 months or as long as 24+ months. It's imperative to have all medical documentation and appointments up to date at all times.
It should carry over. Check with your county's disability advocate, or if your daughter has a specific condition with an association that works for people with that condition (e.g., the MS Society). Good luck!

They cannot seize or garnish her ss for child support or anything else. In fact, you may be able to get ss to pay for the children from the time she applied for ss up though their emancipation. I would have her start paying a small amount towards the arrearage each week to show good faith, but no...Read more »

I'm sorry for this terrible experience, given your disabled condition. A California attorney could advise best but your question remains open for four weeks. If you have medical documentation of the sickness/injury you suffered here, such as ER visit or doctor examination, gather them and see if...Read more »
The most important piece of advice in this situation is not to speak with the investigators without an attorney present. Do not think you can simply explain the situation or talk your way out of it. That will not happen. Best of luck!
That may be because of your plans. Your county MH coordinator should be able to assist you. Because of the reimbursement rates and amount of paperwork involved it is very difficult for anyone on Medical Assistance to find Psychologists or Psychiatrists to help. Philhaven outpatient or similar may...Read more »

Honey I'm so sorry you're going through this. You should go to Catholic Social Services, if you can find one. If your dad has papers you may be able to get your green card through being a trafficking victim. You might be able to find help here: https://ccsww.org/get-help/specialized-services/...Read more »

If you are found to have been disabled for at least 1 year, then yes, you are entitled to benefits, even if it was for a prior period, and no longer need it going forward. However, you can only get benefits going back 1 year from when you apply.
Maybe, but unlikely. If she is qualified for disability for medical reasons, because she has not paid into Title 2 AKA SSDI since 1995, she would not qualify financially. The other benefit available IF she medically qualifies, is Supplemental Security Income AKA Title 16 or SSI.

There is too little in your statement to give a helpful answer beyond speculation. It may be SSA is just slow in getting you your back pay. They often take 3 months to process it and can take more time. At this point, no lawyer will want to help you because you have already won and they can make no...Read more »

The $10,000 inheritance is disqualifying income in the month of receipt. There is not much you can do about that. If you still have that money on hand on the first day of the following month, sitting in a regular ol' checking account, for example, it will be a countable asset and that will again...Read more »
