Thanks to my lovely spam supplier - I had forgotten to post this
I was approved for Soc Security Disability - which surprised me as everyone told me how difficult it is to get & that most people are not approved the 1st time they file. I guess the 22 hospital stays since 2006 makes me appear legit! haha All of the filing for SS was done by a 3rd party law firm that was working for the insurance company that was giving me disability payments. When I received my award letter, the law firm contacted me to say "Dont spend the retro check you get from Soc Sec because a big portion goes to reimburse the Insurance Co" While I didn't spend it, Leigh told me to call them and say it was too late, we were already in Vegas & the money is gone. When I told the guy at the law firm what Leigh had wanted me to say he had a good laugh! I guess a lot of people do spend it & he said they had over 1000 cases of people who spent their SS retro funds before paying back the disability Ins co.
I broke down & bought this Pic shamelessly stolen from nanani Can't wait to see it
so, you've gotten the ss disability now. getting it 1st try is more rare than not. took me two tries, but i didn't have a lawyer. but i did get to keep all of my retro check. that was 11 years ago. i don't wanna say welcome to the "club" but you know how it is. good luck with Medicare.
i don't blame you about treating yourself to FLA2. i saved ahead and did too. but i can't hardly bring myself to watch them too quickly. only seen REINCARNATION and AWAKE so far. worth it to not have those 11 odd minutes of crowd entering/stage building at the start of the wowwow version of REINCARNATION! :)
