HELP - WHEN YOU HAVE NO INCOME

Anonymous started this conversation
Note: This aidpage was started as a comment on "Aidpage of dishmansoo"

dishmansoo,

 There is a TON of help out there. First of all, start with the basics: welfare, food stamps and medicaid. With no income , you should qualify for all of the above. Social services can also assist with rent and utility shut off. If they can't or refuse, ask them where you can go for help.

 Other places to check are: Catholic charities, st vincent de paul, red cross, community action organization, etc. I have all the links on my national organization page.

 Also check my home page for links to soulight, lady christie, and a few other pages that have a ton of resources and help for low income individuals.

Hi I'm so sorry to hear what ur going thru...here's some thoughts...contact your. SENATOR for the area you reside & speak to someone on their staff to ask that your senator request a "Congressional Inquiry " regarding. the ss disability denial. In SC they will fax/mail a form. to you which gives you a forum to state the situation of the claimant, what you'd like the Senator to do on your behalf etc.... They WILL contact ss! Follow. up. Contact case mgrs at the hospital where she's being treated & follow up contacts & discussions IN WRITING. at govt, hospital, human services. & every level! Once. a written correspondence has been made an action must be taken. KEEP NOTES!!! IF NO LUCK CONTACT YOUR LOCAL NEWS REGARDING YOUR SENATORS EFFORTS OR LACK OF....THEY WORK FOR US
God Bless

Since the age of 16, I have worked three jobs from the age 16 to now, the age 52, have had three surgery’s, have back pain around the clock, nee pain, both feet pain all the time, my doctors keep giving me pain medicine, but what happens is when the pain medicine were off the pain come back. Because of my medical problems, I can no longer get or hold down a job. S. S. I say’s they feel I can still work, tell my body that. I am not lazy, after each surgery I went back to work and struggle hard just to make it through each day. I had to come to grip that working days are over for me, thank God for E-B-T help, but I have a wife 2-6 and 14-year-old boys that need me. What can I do but wait on S-S-I? Who turned me down, my lawyers or on it but in the meantime we still need money. The disability laws for approval need a makeover. According to them, you need to be missing a leg, almost in the grave. Please, no harm mint to or handicap people, love them all.
Just trying to survive:

I am in the same situation, It is so sad, we cant get any help but lazy people and drug users can munipilate the the system and get plenty of help, don't give up, God has the last word.
