We've never asked for a dime for our daughter, but we're getting older and want to know she'll be able to get help, so much for that!

Talk about frustration!!
Change her disability to Alcoholism.,, no seriously appeal it, find a Good SS lawyer, or taker her in as a dependent then she will be able you collect based on your benefits
Thanks from Sabcat

That is a matter of opinion and a semantics argument.

Some mental or psychiatric disabilities are very hard to diagnose and you can say: 'that's someone with no self-control' or needs to work. So, how do you explain people who just crash for no drug or outwardly apparent reasons? It does happen...I know of a few cases myself, and up here I recall a famous example in particular that grabbed attention: a 55 year old homeless man who died on the streets of downtown Toronto, and when his identity was looked into it was discovered that he had been a former editor of the Winnipeg Free Press newspaper before he crashed and spiraled downward. The rat race doesn't work for everyone!
Indeed I don't think she deserves it, but I never said she doesn't need it. And yeah there are some cases that I hold reserve for. However, I grew up with my sister. Brilliantly smart and talented, but strived to accomplish the worst set of goals. I tried to be sympathetic, but she would go in for surgery, (and I'm afraid to see my Dr. Because our insurance is screwed.) and not follow the orders for recovery, then has to go back in for the same surgery, I get pissed.
I took my daughter into an orthopedic, because she broke a bone in her hand. My insurance is 35.00 for specialists. They took an x-Ray, put a cast on, and when I went to leave they told me it would be 477.00!? Said the visit was covered and the x-Ray was covered, but the cast was over 400.00! I told them I brought my co-pay. And that is what I gave them, practically in tears. My husband Pays $12,000 and his company matches to almost $24,000.00 in insurance a year.
So tell me....Who are we paying for? Cuz it's not covering my family.
By the way, sister was not receiving less before Obama, but we sure as hell are!
