DISABILITY, APPLYING FOR

Dane W — Norman/Glenwoood, Arkansas ; March 23, 2019 (32 comments)

“I am in the process of filling for social security disability. I have several other health issues but was officially diagnosed with prp last week and am wondering if I should tell them of the new official diagnosis or wait and see what they say as they said they will probably make their decision next week. Any thoughts or experiences with that.

Editor’s Note: The process of applying for disability in the U.S. seems to be a hit and miss proposition. Some get disability on the first try. Others submit repeatedly until they are successful. Other try and are rejected. And I suspect there are those that don’t even try. As a community we need to find out what works and what doesn’t. We learn by sharing — so share your story of success  and/or failure.
