Sorry to bother you all with another thread. Can someone please help me out. I've applied once for disability with the help of a case worker. It was denied. I no longer have a case worker helping me fill out an application. Will that lower my chances of being accepted?
Someone mentioned to me that I should apply for SSI while I'm looking to work still. She said that things were the opposite of what people usually think (that you'll be denied because you work) but that they want you to work and supplement your income. Is that true?
Which should I apply for now? I'm still able to work and I'm looking for a full time job, but I may go for part time if these next two interviews and jobs don't pan out.
Someone also mentioned to me that you commonly get two denials before being accepted/approved for benefits. I am also going to be helping my father apply for disability soon. He has a bad back and has a hard time walking, but still works as an electrician. I hope I'll be able to fill out his application and get him approved, but I'm not sure about that either.
Any advice is very much appreciated by me.
