neuro psych results, ssdi

Postby msmything » Sat Jul 18, 2009 2:20 am

I got the results back from the neuropsych evaluation.
Geez it's no wonder I walk into walls I'm an idiot apparently..my IQ dropped a full 25 points! dur...
he also has recommended 2 x in his report that I apply for SSDisabiltiyInsurance. Has anyone done this?
It has been recommended to me to quit working my 20hr/wk so that I can get SSDI, but my measly job provides me with incredible health insurance.
medicaid insurance is not so good, and, it does not kick in for 29 months after the SSDI.
I'm really struggling financially, the SSDI would really help, but I need the insurance,
'tis a puzzlement'
any input would be greatly appreciated

How many hours do you need to work to get insurance? I believe that one can work 10 hrs a week and still collect SSDI..they have a ticket to work program that "they" say will not interfere with your SSDI.

I am on SSDI and I will tell you it is an arduous task. One will need to provide lots of info. There are some people on SSDI that have decent plans. They get the PPO vs HMO and have greater flexibility. Although a montlhy fee may be charged. The fee would be considerably less than paying individual, or maybe group insurance. much of this info is on www.SSA.gov

Good Luck to you
