Why do people think the government is fair?
Not all laws that exist are actually applied. :/
People who do disability evaluations are actually trained to find reasons to say ‘no.’ Like based on how the applicant looks, for instance, or what they’re wearing, regardless of their actual medical history and how they test in the evaluation.
Organizations and programs that work with disabled and poor people are usually really ableist and classist. Getting real help is HARD.
I don’t understand it either.
I mean the assumption of fairness.
The assumption that they aren’t actively trying to turn us down.
Like I say this to people all the time: ”The job of the Regional Centers is to turn people down for developmental disability services to save the state money.”
And people think I’m being cynical. But no. That’s actually their job. Or one of their jobs. And the job of the SSA is similar.
Exactly. I’m on SSI, and the one thing that everyone with experience with the system told me? They will deny you, you just have to keep appealing. Like- that’s a known part of the system. Nearly everyone getting SSI had to appeal. And the process is frustrating and stressful and more likely to hinder actual disabled people than expose “fakers”. Because that’s what it’s meant to do- discourage actual disabled people.
The military sent me home with a separation discharge after I went full on panic attack for days.
I terrified people who had been overseas and seen people blown up. Its all in my records. Along with many hospital vists from when I was a child. Because I tried to work after this the S.S.I people told me they couldnt even look at this information.
I’ve been denied multiple times and am in the process of starting over because in panic mode I lost all of my paperwork and after 60 days you must start over.
Its beyond stressful and all I want is to be able to pay for my medication that allows me to function and be able to afford food and clothes. Maybe even rent?
Recently my brother was dropped from SSI and was told to his face that they had no evidence he was disabled. While he was sitting in a wheelchair with antropied legs. He had to jump through hoops to get back on. He is constantly jumping through hoops just to stay in the program as each year they change things so that many people will fall through the cracks.
This isnt an accident.
