How Will My Doctor's Misdiagnosis Affect My Disability Outcome?

Category: 

What if my Dr., who I have been seeing for years, has been misdiagnosing and prescribing me the wrong meds, making my condition worse, and me even more disabled. How will this affect my disability outcome? I have done a lot of research and I know it is based on your functional capacity to work at that point in time, which I do not have, but what if the judge thinks my condition might get better if I am no longer on that medication? Because schizophrenia is a condition that may get better but will never truly go away.

Hi,

What Happens To My Disability Claim If I Return To Part-Time Work?

Category: 

I have filed for disability, I have been denied twice, appealed it and just recently appealed for a court hearing. Was told 18 to 24 months before getting a court date. If I think I can go back to work part time what will happen to all the time I have already invented which has been 15 months. My husband and I are financial drowning. What should i do? Wait it out? Or try going back to work for a little bit until my health gets me again

Hi,

I'm sorry, but my only area of expertise is Social Security. I assume that you'd need to contact the Veteran's Administration to get your question answered.

I can tell you that veteran's benefits do not affect Social Security disability benefits, but would count as income against Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments.
