I tried for SSI but my Husband's income is too high to qualify.
There are no more appeals left on my application - was turned down all the times I can be turned down. I'd have to re-apply, but don't have enough medical evidence in my record to support the disability (most of the MD's I've seen have failed to properly document my physical condition, and most of them thought I was faking my poor health so would not help me nor would they document anything of substance in my record...).
I hope the rest of you have better luck with the application process than I did. I think my biggest mistake was not hiring a lawyer from the begining...but oh well...
