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!

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>

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.

Do the same thing that young folks do. Use the Internet! You can apply online for welfare in any US state.

Unfortunately, as others have mentioned, your income is too high to qualify for cash assistance, unless you are unable to work, blind, or over 65. (Pregnancy can also qualify you for assistance, but would probably end after pregnancy in your situation.) In most states, the annual income limit is under $30,000.

Perhaps you could get some help through the Weatherization Assistance Program [link to howdoigetonwelfare.com] . An energy-efficient home may help you save more of your hard-earned and well-deserved money.

Also note that disability doesn't necessarily have to be directly caused by a work incident. Maybe with your background, you are too proud to admit you do have a disability. If every step you take already hurts, then you might be doing more damage to your body while protecting your ego.

Based on your assets plus a retirment I doubt you will be able to collect much of anything. The best kept secret in public assistance is that if you're a grown adult with no dependents then welfare doesn't exist.

You can go to SocialSecurity.gov or something like that on line and find the answers to some questions.

I'm thinking of doing the same thing but there is just me left at home.

Today I found safelinkwireless.com is where to get an Obamaphone in my area so will start working on that.

I'm going to see how much free stuff I can get and try not to work any more so I don't have to pay taxes to provide others with things I don't have myself.

hi, bluebird!

good advice you are giving - going to the source.


maybe you can find people who want to barter, if you have anything someone else might want - trading furniture for a service like painting.

There are ways, but they are local and you have started by finding the phone.

best of luck - working is good only insofar as it helps YOU, not tax-enabled moochers. And is in balance with the rest of your needs.

Oh, it's very easy. First go to your local benefits office and get the forms to fill out. While you are at the table in the waiting room, begin a conversation with anyone there. Begin by saying, "I'm a police officer and I'd like to know how to get on welfare and food stamps." Doing that should get you the best advice. Oh, and keep talking to anyone, your life history is the best thing to talk about. It's the truth, right?

Why do you feel you are entitled to these benefits?

You can still work...

I get my ass out of bed every day... and working from Sunday through Friday night... if not more.

It is not about me -- if it was, I would just kill myself rather than live through this pain and frustration every day. It is about my kids... my wife... my family.

First you need some phony Mexican birth certificates and a green card, or even better Haitian birth certificates. You tell them you have 12 kids, don't know who their fathers are and you weigh 600 pounds and can't work cause your knees, feet and back hurt. You get that backed up by a big city doctor who get a kickback from you. Since you can do most anything online these days I don't think they will ever know exactly who you are except you do have to have a valid address.

If you do legitimately apply for Social Security they deny just about everyone the first time. A lot of people have gone broke before getting the first check.

They are supposed to investigate disability claims and some people who fake it get arrested. Businesses that pay disability for workers hire people to go out and film people on disability.

I have seen lots of fakers. I remember a women who claimed special benefits because she couldn't walk and she had legs like a dancer. Someone noticed and she got bounced. I worked at a supermarket and saw a lot of fakers there. I like the people who don't know how to walk with a cane. I find it interesting that a lot of people who can't walk well buy trucks and SUVs that are difficult for normal people to get in and out.

I remember the days of corporate medical departments who would say you could work whatever your condition.
