Re: Serious question: How do I get on welfare, Social Security and Disability?
99% of you are talking out both sides of your mouths. Disability is very difficult to get and you must have a condition that will last more than 12 months or end in death.

The average wait time for recipients to get benefits is over 2 years with both SS and the V.A.

You will be denied in the beginning unless your nearly unconscious. Many people die while waiting for benefits.

Once people get approved, most average 1k a month. Not a great lifestyle in my humble opinion.

Those of us that worked 20+ years will do much better, but still don't pay the bills.

Getting both SSDI and V.A. will have you making the national median income if you made descent income at your job.

Many people also get reviewed and kicked off benefits.

Our local police chief took retirement, then was 'elected' as city alderman (of course). But here's the thing.. then, he went to work for the local Casey's gas station. Got hired on easily. They have good benefits. Pays about what he made before, I suppose. And I think he still watches for drunk drivers and does part time nark, lol.

Getting on disability is hard. Sounds like you can still work so I don't see that happening.

Getting on welfare is based on your income and family size. If you are a single adult, you will be disappointed.

Getting on Social Security will happen when you reach age if you have paid into the system.

Hope that helps!

Step one is to be dirt poor.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17549114


I make 50K a year, can barely afford to pay my mortgage, put food on the table and pay my utilities, and gas to get back and forth to work, have not been on a vacation in 7 years, and cant afford dental work on a few teeth thanks to gingivitis.

Serious answers please.
 Quoting: Zederok


seriously you NEED to have at least 1 kid under 18
and you NEED to be jobless (laid off) or need to make less than $30k/yr
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26038139


50 k a year and no vacation? are you serious/// People who make under 20 k go on vacation.
First thing you should do is go on a vacation with someone you love, if you dont have someone buy a cat or start smoking ganja. While you are on this vacation think about how you want to live your life. Are you a victim>> or are you a fighter>

So basically I am shit out of luck it sounds like?

I cant stand this country any more.

Why don't you look for a better paying job? Move to it if you have to.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15170057


Taxes on the middle class are high and getting higher. It's much better to cut your expenses to the bone than to just earn more money.

Obastard has rigged things so that only the healthy poor with low expenses win. Having money isn't taxed, earning it is. Figure it out.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27386619


Well, also the old money does fine.

In Greenwich CT there are a lot of low-income people living in $10 million mansions. They are spending their inheritance and don't work.

Re: Serious question: How do I get on welfare, Social Security and Disability?
I am 43 years old, have worked at a minimum of 50+ hours a week since I was 18 years old (Military, then Local Police Officer).

I am tired of this life and want to be able to do all the things these ass clowns do without having to work. Plus I want to help crash the system. I have a legitimate disability (3 knee surgeries and severe arthritis).

I do not know the first clue on how to go about getting on disability, SSI, Welfare and Food Stamps. For those who want to help crash the system like me but have been a productive member of society all my life, how do I do it?
 Quoting: Zederok


Find a middle aged black woman in the projects, offer to pay-as-you-go for her to lead you through all the steps. You will never and I do mean NEVER accomplish your goal without help.

That being said, you could also approach a disability attorney, take all your medical records showing xrays of your knee and descriptions of various surgeries.

Only a smallish percentage of disability claims are accepted but I think you can keep trying. It probably helps if you smell a little and have a one day growth of beard when you go see the social security people, just so you don't look too properous and happy. You need to look and act beat down or you will stand out too much. If you don't believe me, go sit at the food stamp place for an hour, gawd.

Looking non-white can be important too. There was a thread of anecdotal evidence about this a few months ago.

Are you fucking kidding me? 50K a year and you come here to whine about wanting welfare/disability when there are people struggling to make barely a living wage?? Sell your $250,000 house and quit complaining.

WOW.

YOU are a dipshit. $50K with a family, house and paying to

support Liberals is NOT that much income.

Now go on upstairs and get a frozen pizza out of Mama's

refrigerator.

If you can't live on $50,000 a year then you obviously cannot handle money. fuckwad...

That's the answer. When you fail, blame the liberals.

So i see. Someone wants to quit their 50k a year job, and go on welfare and food stamps, and then talk shit about the liberals. I'm sure your republican buddies will be more than happy to give you some more public benefits. Oh damn, sorry, your money just went to bomb some innocent kids in Libya instead.

No, that won't do it; because no needy Americans will ever get a dime of aid. Only people with bureaucratic CONNECTIONS ever get anything from entitlement programs. Graft and corruption; if you're dishonest, you're in... otherwise, you're OUT.

Get poor, get old, get broken. But it's not worth it.
