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.

Response from Ms. Franzoi

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.

Changing jobs/insurance
Denied further claims while under Doctors care
