Had disability hearing

I had my disability hearing yesterday. It went really well and my lawyer is confident. The judge was very nice and asked me the usual questions. The VE said I could not do past work or any work. The VE did not ask me any questions either. At the end, the judge said he would mail out my decision in a few days. I had to laugh though because I was checking out the camera as I was leaving and waved at it and the judge smiled and waved goodbye to me. I forgot he was still online!

Re: Had disability hearing

Funny thing is that with the way it's worded, I'm pretty sure that I qualified for SSDI too. Interesting because of my age.

Re: Had disability hearing

I'm 24. I was wondering if I have qualified for SSDI because my letter said that because of my age, there was an issue I met insurance requirements. It said that I earned sufficient quarters and I was found to meet disability insurance requirements. I would be surprised if I receive SSDI because I thought you had to have a longer work history than I do.

You WANT SSDI, if at all possible, you generally get more in payment, you do NOT have to meet any means test, income/resource limitation tests, you do with SSI. Also with SSDI, after ONE YEAR, as I understand it. you qualify for FULL MEDICARE coverage! Medicare makes it much easier to access health care than Medicaid does. Now IF you are financially strapped, there may well be state programs where you live to assist in any deductions, etc with Medicare and possibly your SSDI income, if it is low enough.
Unfortunately that is not correct. Medicare starts after 29 full months of disability. So 29 months after the date they consider you disabled. I wish it was sooner, but unfortunately it is not. It leaves a lot of disabled people with no insurance for over 2 years. But at least you will know its coming! Mine won't be here until December. Still waiting!!
