SSDI and Workers Comp
(03-26-2015, 07:35 PM)California_Help Wrote: Dolphines, I wonder if you are just receiving SSI and may also qualify for SSDI. Have you applied for SSDI of not I recommend applying for it? SSI is completely different from SSDI but both come from the Social Security office and why it can be confusing.

If you click the link I posted in my above post it will state why they want your spouses income info. It does affect what you are receiving. If you were on SSDI, it would not matter what your spouse makes.

Some folks can receive both ssdi and ssi. I think it's called a concurrent claim ...not sure exactly . However when a claimants SSDI comes out really low ,they will supplement with SSI.

The national average SS payment is around 1150.00 a month.

Also if SS is requesting a medical exam for a CDR. A claimant typically has the option of using your own doctor to do the exam .SS will pay your doctor to do it. They do not tell the claimant this.

Be well Dolphins

Part of your check must be SSI, so they request her salary because they go off household income. If her income changes, your check ( deposit ) could change too. Especially if her income were to drop substantially. You then would be eligible for food EBT.
I did apply for ssdi in 06 they said I didn't earn enough in some pay period, so I only get ssi.
That explains why they want your wife's income.
Your money goes off household income. That being said, If you have children, and they enter into the work force, their income will figure into yours as well.

When you apply for EBT food, you should apply for EBT cash, and fuel fund as well. Some programs will also help with power, and gas bills. Sometimes firewood is available too. Worth checking into.

I don't know how old you are Dolphines (do not write personal info on a website)...but once you hit a certain age, you will be able to get your SSDI. I think it is worth checking into.

Yes I agree with dusty boy there is a lot of help out there. I have a website that can do a search by state for resources for housing, line help, food banks etc If anyone needs it I will send in a private message. (I am not allowed to post it publically).

By the way, bravo to the injured workers on this site who try their best to help each other. It is very nice to see this and the camaraderie on this forum.

I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.
