Hi!
I'm assuming you mean SSDI in the United States. If that's the case, you really need to talk to an attorney or a government official to address that issue, but here's a link that describes the kinds of information they ask for when deciding whether someone qualifies for disability payments: www.ssa.gov/pubs/10029.html.

Also, sometimes counselors and psychiatrists are familiar with state disability requirements. You might try asking the person who will be qualifying you as having a long-term disability (12 months or longer).

Hope that helps!

Hi LMM56!

I'm in the US and have been receiving SSDI for years, now. When I applied, I was allowed to have one vehicle for myself to get to and from doctor's appointments and the mobile home I was living in at the time. I didn't even know that at the time I applied, just came up when I met with SSA after I was approved. I just went online and took the documents from there and applied. I didn't talk to any lawyers, but the SSA was very helpful while I was trying to fill out my application. I was very detailed with my application, every thing I had wrong with me, was listed, whether it disabled me or not.

Good luck!
