In august I had a defibrillator put it for my birthday. told to file for disability because I can not work any more. I wait 5 months for an answer to see if I got it. Friday I get the news. the good news is I got it,But the bad news is I do not get any back pay. it seems if you file for ssi disability you have to have a 5 month waiting time with no pay, This is for a working man that pays into it all his life.but some one that has never worked a day in his life can file for ssi and dose not have any waiting time to get it. they will get paid from the time they file to the time they get it. I just love how the working man is put down and kicked all the time. sorry for the rant just had to get it of my chest.

Sorry. I hate how backwards our system is. I had a buddy dying, and they put him through hell because he owned a business. Um, 36 years of paying taxes and SS. Little time left here and desperate for the money since they had to shut the shop when he got sick. It makes no sense.
