I have applied for ssi/ssdi in maryland
I have been off work since December 2006 receiving no money from workmans comp/ cant get an answer.
I have used up all my money, have nothing - no retirement - no life ins.
I have two cars in my name I live with my older daughter since my injury.
One is mine worth 2900. and one is my daughters blue book valued at 2300.
Apparently they dismiss one car so they took mine off but my daughters car put me over the limit.
The woman I spoke to at social security said if i took my daughters car t oa used car dealership and got a qute I could use that amount. I knew my daughters car was not worth 2300. so I did and they valued it at 1750.
Will this help me....
Also how long does one wait to hear about ssi/ I assumed it would be quick.
Does ssi start from when you apply or does it go back to injury date and
how much des one get.
