and not a good wow. we just found out how much, or rather how little, min will get each month on disability. i shouldn't have been surprised i guess, since my dad is on it and gets around $700.

but when min saw the guy last week, he said it'd be $1-2k/month. instead, let's just say it's going to be less than that but more than my dad gets. and granted, that's totally better than nothing, but it still sucks to be getting so much less than she'd been told to expect.

that sucks. well, at least there's *something* coming in i guess. still...

my friend b. just had his disability cancelled. or rather they sent him a "we are done with your claim" note after initially saying he'd get 52 weeks of it.

so, he gets one more check, for half of what he is used to (which already isn't much) and then that's it.

it seems he hasn't lived in CA long enough (between a year and a year and a half, i think) to continue. basically, if he'd lived here longer, he'd be okay.

it's not an "appealable" thing, either.

but i digress...i'm so sorry that min didn't get what she (you guys) thought. big hugs...

I hate to say this, but I am far from surprised. It's rare that someone gets what they really need from this source, which is why folks in Min's place find off the books work where they can get it (and of course are physically able to do it).
