How to Apply for Disability When You are Told You Can’t Apply for Disability

Art: Robin Mead

If someone has told you that you cannot apply for disability, please don’t give up hope quite yet. Even if the person who told you this is a lawyer, or a caseworker, or someone who works at Social Security!

We cannot make any promises, but we can tell you that many of our readers were told this and it turned out not to be true. Or it turned out to be true, but they discovered there were other ways they could apply.

What were you told?

Someone Told Me I Can’t Apply for Disability Because…

Someone Told Me I Can’t Apply for SSDI Because… 

Someone Said I Can’t Apply for SSI Because…. 

Wait! What’s The Difference Between SSI and SSDI?

Someone Told Me It Will Be Impossible Because

Can I Apply for Anything Else? 

I’m Still Confused

Thanks for Reading

  1. I keep trying to go back to work but I just can’t make it work. I’ve always wanted to make my own money since the kids got older but I just stay so sick. Thank you for figuring out my work credits. I can’t say enough how much your help mean to me!
