It’s now been 4 1/2 months since the procedure that left me with hearing and voice and headache and balance issues. It’s been 3 months since I applied for Social Security Disability. My questions for today are:
- I have been living without my income for 4 1/2 months - fortunately, my wife makes a good living as an RN so we aren’t homeless or on the verge of it. But we are seeing the credit card bills climbing higher and higher and it’s getting harder and harder to balance the money for the month. I really want to get the disability because then I can rebuild at my pace not at a forced pace. Any idea how long it would take and when we might hear anything? Do I try to hold out or do I look for a part-time job that I can “get through” to keep us afloat? I can probably make it through a 4 hour shift - I would just need time every day after that to isolate and quiet myself and my head.
- Does anyone know whether a part time or temporary income earning position wipes out what you’re hoping for with Social Security?
Any other ideas?
