Does anyone have any information on filing for diability?  Is it as simple as talking with your Dr. and having him complete the paperwork required by my employer?  Any info is appreciated.

Listen to Dawg and get back to us on what type of disability, I have no clue about it through an employer but if you need someone that hasnt had negative experience through the govt. then you'll want to talk to me as one of your sources. Its not always bad as some people would lead on, or think.

I had a pretty easy go of getting Social Security Disability, but then again I was in TERRIBLE shape. It took about 8 weeks +/- I think, with no lawyer, and no initial "turn downs". It sucks that it is so difficult for some to get, but like CrohnsPatient said - not every story is a horror story.
