My wife receives disability. Something like 80% of what she earned in the year before leaving work. Being on the Oxycontin I think helped. No lawyer necessary but the doctor we used had familiarity with filing these claims. Took 10 weeks to process. SSI requested a ton of records. We got back pay also because she had been off awhile. She was(is) an RPN. No appeals needed. Chronic pain and a medical history qualified. Just call SSI they will send out the info or request it from a reputable lawyer. You don't need a lawyer unless they reject. He just collects the money anyway. For all I know it's probably on the Net. Search disabilty, filing.

> Tina, I was wondering the same thing. Also, I wanted to know how much
money they are receiving (if someone is willing to give that information) it may vary from person to person but at least we could get a ball-park figure. If you find out any information, would you please pass it on to me? I REALLY need to stop putting my body through the harshness of working full time but I was afraid I wouldn't qualify for disability. I need to know too, how they filed. Thanks so much for thinking about this question, I hope you get answers!!!!! >
