I filed a disability claim

Not sure if I’ll get it though. I was denied before twice.

Third time could be a charm.

My aunt who worked for 30+ years is legit disabled but she ended up having to get a lawyer. She has bipolar and back problems.

I hope it comes through for you @anon80629714 . It’s nice to be able to survive with little stress. Money can be a big stressor in modern life!

You should be very clear in the paperwork that you have schizophrenia and a doctor to verify that. Also explain that you hear voices.

I don’t hear voices nor have schizophrenia but I was honest on paperwork. When my dx was schizophrenia it still didn’t stop them denying my claim twice Still worth a shot. :slightly_smiling_face:

Welcome to the forum @MaeOne :slightly_smiling_face:

How can SSDI justify denying someone that has DX of schizophrenia that is keeping all doctor appointments, actively seeking help and still suffering from delusions/depression/anxiety/paranoia?

I am in the UK, rarely see a doctor (not out of choice, i keep getting discharged)…been denied twice before…

It’s by level of inability to function and work. If they think you can do any job at all, they will deny you.

What jobs can be done by a person with suffering from delusions/depression/anxiety/paranoia? I’m not being sarcastic. I’m sincerely interested in which jobs they would recommend or think I should seek?

That’s great! Do you go into an office or work from home with flex hours?
