i have been denied twice, in 2 separate applications, for disability in the last 4 years. i will soon try one last time, and would like help and advice for the best possible outcome.

in the first 2 attempts, i had no insurance or money to see doctors -- the determinations were made using the brief doctor appointments set up by the social security people. last fall i finally got approved for limited medical benefits through state social services. it has been a very slow process, but i am now beginning to address my disabilities (in a limited way)under a doctor's care. i'm hoping better documentation from medical people will help my application.

here's an example of the type of help/advice i need: i have both physical and mental disabilities. is it better to list as many conditions as possible in the application, or pick one or two that are most likely to be approved?

i have no money, and live one step away from homelessness. i'd appreciate any kind of help (including where to go for it if this is the wrong place). thank you.

Hello

thank you for getting in touch with us, and please excuse our late reply.
As regards your question, it is quite difficult for us to answer, as such issues are very region or country specific.
Have you thought getting in touch with a local organisation for the disabled?
they might be better informed as to where to find the proper help.

Hoping you come along in your quest,
regards,
Catherine
