Question

I'm running this again since I didn't get any bites earlier.

Can anyone give me a good reason I should put in for SSDI. Reason I'm asking is I'm retired on a gov. disability retirement under the old system, so never had to pay SS. So what ever money I get will just be compesated by taking the same amount out of my retirement check. Hope I said that right! ha. So if I'm correct, the only benefit I would get is medicare after 2 years. Any bites on this one?

I don't know the answer but what about Medicare?

Veterans deserve real choice for their health care.

I realize medicare is a great benefit to have, but was wondering if there was any other benefits available if I was granted SSDI I haven't heard anything and was wondering if anyone else has. I guess since I haven't gotten any feedback except from you I'll take it as no. ha

I retired on CSRS. I was given the choice to move over to FERS but decided not to because of my age combined with what I already paid in to SS. Another words I wouldn't of had enough quarters to qualify for full benefits. I think now I might of made a mistake going that way cause they retired me with a disability at age 54 and probably would of gotten full benefits.
