Yes, there is a way. You must go to the SSA office, sit down with them and tell them you have some real problems.

They can write to your creditors and explain the situation and request that the creditors forstall your payments, etc.

But, you gotta get down to the SSA and let them know. Take bills, etc., with you.

Most states will also offer some aid. Get the SSA to get you with the state human services dept. They are usually on a "first name" basis with the person "in the know" at the state offices.

There IS some help out there.

I wish you the best of things and luck with the SSA.

Waynekn, first let me say I'm very sorry to hear this and I've heard it before. I know what your going through. I have been going down this road except for drawing Unemployment, to SSA this mean you are employable and later on down if approved in court you date of back pay will be your last Unemployment check you received, yes thats right I'm very surprised your lawyer did not inform you of this. I am severely disabled and was told after my second attempt at SS that I could still talk and could be a doll stuffer among other ridiculous things. I am presently waiting on a 2 year back log of cases before I am up, put simply "NO" unless you are dieing or paralyzed from the neck down there is no way in hell to speed it up. drawing unemployment was a big mistake, showing any kind of income hurts your case. This show that you are able to work in SSA eyes. Sorry but this is how it works as I said before it doesn't seem fair it because it isn't. Hope you get in to court with in a year or so this is your only hope. Good Luck RC

I think that you might ask Lawyer if he can speed it up. I know it looks back but you would be amazed at how things can work out.

Good Luck

Do you have any medical evidence to support they are wrong in order to appeal this?

A lawyer would need to have that too.

The SSA has a specific criteria for every disability- it isnt the same as VA's.

You should call them for a copy of their criteria and match your evidence to it.

Also there are many SSA forums on the net and perhaps there someone can give you additional advise.

BETRA, i found out that the diagnosis by the VA with chronic PTSD was not included in last appeal so I guess i can address that when I go before adminstrative law judge. My wife draws disability now and is applying for SSI. My lawyer is pushing for die need to speed up things and I am working with Conressman Snyder from my state, will also contact contact Sen. Linclon and Pryor. I am also trying to expidite my Va claim.

Hello waynekn

one remaining unemployment check?

You can't recieve unemployment checks unless your fit for work and actively seeking work.

You can't recieve a disability check from SSA unless your disabled and unable to perform work.

Social Security will not approve your claim untill you have been unable to work for one year. Being fit for employment falls somewhat short of being completely disabled to the point you can not even do sedentary work.

I guess what Im trying to say is, maybe drawing an "unemployment" check isn't the way to prove your completely disabled.

As far as expediting your claim. If you have been notified that you have a terminal illess? Than you may be able to recieve expeditious treatment.

My attorney is aware that I am drawing unemployment and says can work around that as that and my wife's SSDI aren't enogh to cover all my lialabilities. He was able to get my wifes caim thru within 6 mos. of filing using dire need her calim was for

Anxity Depression Disorder, was told her calim is permenatley non-reviewable by judges order but am not sure that is correct. If I don't get back pay that is fine but do need SS to keep going while I continue to fight with VA over PTSD,COPD and other issues. Lawyer says by me telling employers that I have a VA claim for PTSD shows umemployability as do the other disabalities. I am filing for total of 7 issues. As soon you mention PTSD so far all employers are very nice as they politely show you the door after saying it doen't necessarily effect your consideration for empolyment.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
