Help With Social Security Disability

Help With Social Security Disability

Hello, Can you Please help me. I am reaching out to get help for my husband who has been diagnose with Parkinson's. We are applying for Social Security Disability and we are lost of what is needed to say or do. Can you give me someone I can talk to about this? He drives a tractor trailer for a living. He is still working, but wants to stop. If feels he is not eligible for SSD. HELP
Thank You
Sherree Miller

One of my RSB friends said you should fill out all the paperwork by hand instead of typing it on the computer. It'll likely show crappy handwriting which is further evidence of your disability. I haven't tested this theory, but I intend to soon.

I was over dosed when I applied for SSD. over dosed with Sinemet. ( i didn't know it at the time, but this caused my dyskinesia to flare up and my tremors were awful, so was approved the next week. 😂 I'm not suggesting you try this but its my story, also list on the application all your ills, I didn't put on my application my arthritis in my hands nor my nephropathy in my legs from chemo. List all of that stuff. 🙂oodLuck.
