    Those who have dealt with the SSA--was my experience common?

    This may be a vent here but I appreciate all your input. A while back I applied with the Social Security Administration, and my interview was quite recent. It was, in short, a mixed bag of issues and I fear I am not alone in this realization. It was via Telehealth, as the location in my state...

    Do I have a right to be angry, or is it childish?

    I'm the only member of a family of four who has had the opportunity to learn of my neurodivergence and do something about it. I highly suspect that both my parents have things going on in their brains, but due to not being willing to address said divergencies, both my older sibling and I were...

    My Social Security Hearing Today

    I had a telephone hearing before an Administrative Law Judge for Social Security disability today. A Vocational Expert was present. That individual said there were some jobs in the national economy for me, but a job at 15 hours per week (what I’m doing now) wouldn’t be competitive. I...

    Looks like I have a representative for my Social Security disability claim

    I’m poised to sign paperwork to hire a non-attorney representative to represent me in my upcoming Social Security disability hearing. I’m wondering what it’s like to have a non-attorney representative work on a disability claim.

    Received a denial on my reconsideration for Social Security disability benefits

    My letter states in part that the available evidence demonstrates my conditions may limit my ability to perform some types of work, but not all types of work. The letter also says I can perform work without extensive training or social interaction. Also, Social Security doesn’t have enough...
