It took me years to get SSDI. The good thing about it in the US , is not only do you get the monthly payment, but you can get backpay from the time you initially applied.

I don’t know if she is working on getting SSDI or SSI, and I know little about SSI, so I don’t know if its the same circumstances.

I went for years with no steady income after psychosis and losing jobs, sometimes making money where I could here and there. I actually thought it was my religious duty to collect pop cans for awhile, so I would ride all around town on my bike, going through dumpsters and garbage cans to make money from the deposit. I would spend most of the day on this and usually made more than you would think. Then, because I was psychotic, I would give most of it away to religious charities or the homeless and such, because I thought it was my duty.

Anyway, I’m getting long winded now. The point is, there was a pretty significant windfall of back pay when I finally did get on SSDI.

Good luck.


Good luck man… keep us updated.

You earned it. You worked. I’m sorry you had it rough.


Yeah, my old roommate got a back payment check for $25,000. He bought two cars, the best Craftsman tool box and filled it with tools and all kinds of radio controlled airplane models. I guess money doesn’t buy happiness because he ended up committing suicide.

UK person here. I guess I have always been fortunate. Never had any problems obtaining benefits here in England. I started getting benefits when I was 17 years old and I’m now 38 and in that time only been to one assessment, and in that assessment they said they would obviously see I was severely disabled and disability benefits would remain the same. That was 2018.

Good luck with the appeal.

Courts stress me so I hope that you guys can handle it smoothly.

Why was she denied initially? Does she also have sz?

Im lucky I got my ssdi right after applying. I worked right up to getting it for over 20 years. Ssdi has been a blessing.


@Jonathan2 she has severe depression and a very bad back…
