NEETs and mentally ill people: how do I expedite my disability income claim? I'm schizo and they don't return my calls. Also how do I get the most money?
get a social worker to help you. ask your local MP for help. talk to your doctor so he can sign offon the papers.
whats good is when you first applied, you will be back payed from then till you are accepted.
i know a person who waited a year to get approved and their first cheque was for 12grand
That's not going to help I don't know who to talk to
I quit my job last month because I couldn't go to work everyday and hear people talk about me and how much they want me to die and the visual hallucinations
If I don't get an income this month I am probably gonna be homeless and my car is broken so I don't think I can see my doctor
I only know about canada disablity.
you might have to get on welfare first, which will be a lot less then what disablity gives you. then from there apply for disablity.
i dunno m8 about American shit.
go into an welfare office itsself and make an appointment.
You retard, it can take years to get disability. You're fucked. If you're American, you are guilty until proven innocent and that's how social workers will treat you when you apply for benefits.
i got disablity in about 3 months.
i had my psychirtrist feel out forms for me, and send them in for me.
if you have a diagnois, and a doctor vouching for you saying you are unable to function in society it goes by very fast.
I've seen a psychiatrist about the visual hallucinations but I didn't see him yet about the auditory ones cuz car is broke
I'm on medicaid already
How do I make the disability office people return my calls
Call them. get a number and enquire about it.
really havinga doctors note helps you alot.
how long have you been waiting?
they are almost always overloaded with cases.
you need to get a disability lawyer. only people with actual illnesses can do it themselves.
Enjoy living below the poverty line
When on disability you can't afford:
They literally only pay for food, water, a ghetto housing complex
>litterally a poor white boy
And maybe repairs to the house.
Well the way ive been living with supposedly multiple things that are disability eligibility, I havent had any money in 5 years and every time I did work, I had to sleep in the parking lot and id spend multiple days awake in a row unable to sleep, endangering the lives of other motorists and things. I have no money at all. NONE. Its not that the work is hard, I was the best at my company of over 300 employees, but I have so many issues that trying to deal with them and continue living uses up all of my energy. if anything, im way better at most things then other people because I want to maximize use of the energy I do have and stop doing things as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, I have a cunt of an aunt who is just deaf and has a bachelor's and can speak 4 languages and she hasnt worked in 30 years because she can just sit on her ass getting paid to not hear things as if thats some huge fucking disability.
Get your family or someone else that gives a fuck about you to help in meantime then.
No one on here knows you and as far as the rest of the world is concerned your just some useless jackass that the government forceably takes money from us to support until they finally snap and shoot us in a theatre while we're trying to watch the fucking batman after working all week because the government doesn't give the rest of us free money just for existing.
Also it's not like living with schizophrenia is a cakewalk. Mine doesn't respond to medication so I'm probably going to have to have electroshock therapy and it probably won't work, but you probably don't care about what I'm saying.
Let me put it this way:
I didn't choose to be born to a single mother in poverty who decided to have another 2 kids
I didn't choose to live on the streets and with drug dealers who beat me and my brother and diddled my sister until I was 16
It's not my fault I was rejected from all but one of my colleges despite a 2250 SAT, 33 ACT, and 5s on many AP exams solely because I'm white and had a shit GPA because my home life was abysmal and I missed tons of school
It's not my fault that I didn't get enough scholarship money to make the out of state tuition affordable for more than 1 year.
I have to live in this state until August or so, so I can get instate tuition and go back and finish stuff. Schizophrenia doesn't affect your cognitive abilities so I had a 4.0 during my first year where I took differential equations and linear algebra, organic chemistry, and physics.
It's not my fault that the school doesn't give you scholarships based on grades after you're admitted and so I'm still stuck paying a ton until I get instate.
It's not my fault I'm schizophrenic and see and hear things other people don't. It's not my fault I can't hold a job because I hear my boss and coworkers whispering about how he's going to kill me.
It's not my fault I don't respond to the shit ton of medicines I've tried.
I didn't ask for this and I could do great things if I had some fucking support but I don't and so I suffer for no other reason than I was unlucky and wasn't born to a normal family like you might have been.
That might depend on what state you're in and what your condition is too though. My mom has bipolar disorder and PTSD and it still took her a couple of years to get it.
Whatever the case, people who get it in less than a year are pretty lucky.
yea. well i am in Canada.
i got on welfare when i was 16 because i was living by myself. when i signed up for welfare, i also said im applying for disablity.
i had a history of multiple hospital visits, and never had a previous job for more then 2 weeks.
i had major proof that i was unablt to function in society enough to support myself.
if the case workers see you have had no major problems in your life, held a steady job, and your illness didnt interfer with your life, you are less likely to get disablity.
i have to get medically checked out every 5 years to see if i am better in any way because techicailly my situation will not last forever. but if i am still not functioning in 5 years, i will continue to get disablity. but if i make improvement they will stop disability.
Yeah, being in Canada, or in certain US states makes all the difference. I'm in North Carolina, and I'd imagine with our government, it's a harder process. My mom not only has the PTSD/bipolar disorder, but a horrible back that prevents her from doing a lot of work, and it still took her two years or so to get it.
And yeah the rest of those rules pretty much apply here too. They periodically check to see if you have "improved" and if they deem you able to function in society, they take you off of it. You can also work part time apparently while on it too.
What is your condition, if you don't mind me asking?
>Do you understand that 24,000 a year is poverty?
when i was working i made $2k/month and i was living like a king. i mean i lived in the ghetto and i have a shit car but i had more money than i knew what to do with. my expenses for the month are only like $1000 total.
i would happily live on 24k a year. no complaints whatsoever.
yea you can work part time, but you must report your earnings to the goverment and they will gie you less each month until you start making more then what disablity gives you. in Canada, you are also not allowed to have more then 5k in savings or assets. You have to make a special request to keep more then 5k in your bank account and say what you are saving money for.
I'm bipolar 1, and borderline personality disorder, as welll as severe anxiety.
I have depression and anxiety too, so I've been thinking about trying for disability here recently. I tried for a job last September and had an anxiety attack my first day, and was fired not long after. I guess I just debate back and forth if I'm really bad off enough to justify disability, because I actually want to work, but I don't know if I can.
its common for people with mental illness to self medicate. i think they view me as a worthless junkie, but rather a mentally ill person trying to escape my illness with the use of drugs, and ont blame me for doing so.
