  • Hi Tammy, thank you for all the good suggestions.
    I am currently getting rental assistance from the county, but soon I may be faced with paying more from my own pocket as a result of my landlord raising the rent (great timing). I do contact the county agencies quite often to see what else is out there for me, and currently my doctor has written a letter to my phone company requesting that they at least not shut off my local phone (I have passed out due to my IBS in the past).

    Good idea about asking the attorney to write that letter now.... I am going to call him today about that very thing.

    As long as you have an attorney, do you think he'd write a letter to your state congressman or representative asking for assistance for you. Maybe having someone in the rep's office help get you to state aid, etc.

  • Good idea..... I have been considering talking to my disability lawyer about that as well. In fact I talked to my attorney again today, but he said that unless I had an actual written eviction notice from my landlord it wouldn't do any good.... I told him I got a written threat stating possible eviction from my landlord, so my attorney told me in that case he would do it.... so, well, I will see if I can dig up that letter and I'll send it off to my attorney. He seemed a bit reluctant to do it though, his reply was "there are hundreds of people out there just like you".... I reminded him that most of them probably at least have family that they could go live with or help them out if need be, and that I do not.... Dang.

    My hubby and I have talked about if my LTD were to end and I didn't have SSDI, and he still didn't have a job here then we'd just sell off what we have and move to Michigan. Living with my parents would NOT be fun but at least we have family we can run to and my parents are renting a very large home so they'd open the door to us if it came to that. Then we'd sell our house here, and although the market is bad here we'd get at least some money. The bad part.....the job market in Michigan is worse than Arizona so moving there would be a last resort.

  • It's always good to have a plan. My problem is, both my parents have passed away.... after the sale of my parent's house my one and only sibling took off with all the money and she is out in Colorado, she took my share of what should have been mine according to the Will, and now I am stuck here with these health issues.... I have one elderly aunt and uncle left, they live about 3 hours away tho and can't help me out, she has many health issues of her own..... no one has heard from my nasty sister. So, I have no back-up plan as I have no where to go. A friend in MN offered to let me stay with her if I needed to, but I hope it doesn't come to that. So now I wait to go before the ALJ, may be about a year before I can do that tho, according to my attorney. In the meantime I am trying to hang in there..... I may be losing my internet tho.....just cannot afford it right now.... so if I disappear for a bit, that is why....

  • So sorry things did not go your way. Do not give up....where there is a will, there is a way!!
    Have you tried for SSI? I would give it a shot. As I understand it, it is easier to get than SSD. Expecially at your age. Your Lawyer can help you with it.
    Best of luck to you.

    If you get an SS attorney see if he can help you find someone to assist you in suing your sister. If there was a valid will then she violated it by taking all of the funds. You'd have to weigh the cost of an attorney given what you'd be entitled to if you could successfully sue your sister. No one should have given her access to any funds until after the will was reviewed and validated.
