Bubbaryn, I'm sorry you didn't get it the first time. It can be very difficult but I do think they need to review your case. You have several things and diabetes isn't what is keeping you in pain. You've gotten some good advice here. Keep trying.
Congrats, Miriam! I'm so glad that worked out. Boy, you have had a lot of changes in the past year, haven't you! AND they are all working for the good for you. I'm really happy for you.
No, Sage. I had to take disability and they deducted 29% off it. Then they deducted for Medicare, which is the main reason I went for disability. I have many chronic illnesses and when my husband passed on, no one would insure me.
Anyway, I'm going to be 65 years old next year and the deduction will remain. It will never go up to what I would have gotten if I could have waited. It's a big chunk of change taken out for as long as you live. They do this because you are getting money a lot longer than the average worker.
