Hi all,
   I'll be joining many of you at SSDI hell soon.  I just received notification that I can work "transitional" duties until July 1, then I can no longer do my full duties, so I'm done at my job.  What a *****!  I'm going to apply for my employees short term disability as soon as I can and have everything ready to apply for SSDI as close to July 1 as I can.  Can I qualify for SSDI while receiving STD??  It could be worse, as technically I don't qualify for transitional duties so they could have said I'm done immediately, but they gave me the 45 days to receive my paycheck.  Now if I can talk them into letting me work Sundays and holidays for the rest of my time so I can receive time and 1/2 for those days, that would be great!  Now, I hope my doctor supports me, and then also accepts medicaid, and all the other problems associated with this mess....
I'll keep you informed!  Good luck to all those in this situation!!   Wendy
