I started taking a form of chemotherapy in 10/2002. I started missing days from work right away. In no time I was missing 2 or 3 days a week.
On 1/29/2003 I was put on LTDB on my employer's disability plan. I have been on it ever since.
At some point they require you to file for SSDI benefits. If you are approved your total disability check remains the same. If SSDI pays you $1000 then my employer will pay the difference to keep the check the same.
SS keeps talking about starting your benefits 6 months after you became disabled.
Is that the 1/29/2003 date or the day I file my application.
We are also filing for spouse's benefits. Do you include that in the intial filing?
We are going to file an application for SSDI this week. I supplied around 400 pages of medical records to SSDC. They are a national company that my employer pays to help us speed up our cases.
Have a happy, healthy Sunday
