I have to wonder how that’s done. When I had back problems so bad I couldn’t even breathe without it hurting, and had dizzy spells so bad I couldn’t talk straight, I gave in and tried to apply for disability benefits. I was rejected because I “wasn’t disabled enough”.
I think it basically depended on the caseworker. CA had many caseworkers who felt that their job was to get everybody on SSI. They’d now be hanging out with the Occupy crowd.
