If your lawyer is "done with you" he may realize your case is not winnable, that you can indeed do some kind of work to support yourself. You may try contacting another lawyer, but that too may be a waste of your time and energy. You may want to talk to a career counselor for advice. Or look into those programs for the disabled that train them for some kind of employment. Many disabled people work and are proud to be able to either support themselves or contribute to their support.

SSI stands for Self Sufficient Income.

Sheesh, I don't why some people around here don't know that.

Because that's not what SSI stands for. Supplemental Security Income is the correct full name.

Here's a link that explains it and even has a quick "Are You Eligible" screen. Please note that it's designed to help "blind, aged and disabled people".

Supplemental Security Income

Napy666 is a woman in her early to mid 20s who has posted on the Relationships forum in the past. She has never held a job for long. Apparently her parents are getting tired of her sleeping half the day and staying up late into the night and not even looking for work. They've fought because she only bathes once a week. She hopes to meet a man to team up with who is willing to support her. She has not had much luck so far. This is all from her own past posts. Now I see she's trying to get SSI so she can have some kind of an income. Perhaps her parents have finally told her they want her to move out. This has nothing to do with prepping or self-sufficiency should the SHTF. This young lady needs to get in the shower, get some decent clothes, forget finding a man and sleeping all day and find work of some kind,.. or get back in school and learn some kind of trade at the least.

A lot of the writing jobs screw me over becuz they'll pay me like $25 a story and only talk to me once a month or every few months to even a year or more. So thats nothing. I have tried selling stuff on ebay never got a lot of money, I have been applying to places with no luck.

If this question was answered before, I missed it: What medical condition does the OP have that prevents him from working? Some people believe that disability is not a criterion for SSI. This is a common misconception. One must be disabled in order to receive SSI benefits.

Here is a good site that explains some common reasons SSI denials.

I think the biggest reason for the high denial rate is the fact that many applicants simply do not qualify for SSI.

If your appeal is turned down, there are , as I understand it as many as 3 opportunities to still qualify -- It sort of works its way through the court system

Moving to Health & Wellness from Self-Sufficiency & Preparedness, as the OP's question about the SSI process is not within the context of SS&P, but possibly a disability of some sort.

What is your disability? On your SSI application, what is your medical reason for being unable to work?

They can deny your claim for any reason they want. If a person is in a wheelchair,blind and only one arm they can even deny his claim. They can say he has the ability to answer the phone and therefore can work at a job answering the phone and that would be the end of it..Its not fair but they do this all the time.
