I was denied SSI.In order to receive you must be uneployed.But then later can go back,and still receive SSI.Other non-hiv persons get assistance right away for just depression/anxiety.Why?They want us on our death bed, before we can be stress free,and take better care of ourselves,and still work to put monies back into the goverment?Very Angry.

I am sorry that you were denied Social Security benefits. However, this is common regardless of the nature of one's disability. It is common to denied the first time you apply. I encourage you to appeal the denial and apply again.
