Anyone here self employed & getting SSDI? My initial application was denied in December without consideration of my medical problems. Have CFS/FM & hypermobility with tons of documentation (5 years of medical records), plus I'm well under the limit for income. I also have the qualifying quarters & have paid into the system. And, the local SS interviewer told me if I was working for someone else there would be no question as to my getting pproval. I have an attorney. He couldn't understand how I could be denied without further consideration of my health just because I supposedly can work up to 3 hours per day. Those 3 hours are at the most 45 minutes here & there through the day (sometimes, other days not at all), not continuous & not productively as I've got to redo my work to be sure my brain fog hasn't made my words unfathomable. Plus with my pain & sensory overload I can only work by myself in the dark without any nearby noises. I'm going for my appeal & will be completing paperwork in the next 2 weeks. Just wondering if anyone else who is self employed has had this run around. It certainly isn't right (dare I say fair?) as I have a home based internet business that has a history of 13 years. I don't have to commute, don't have to get dressed beyond my comfies, recycle & don't pollute, & contribute to the greater social good. I'm not wheelchair bound nor bedridden, but with my hidden disabilities no one would hire me & I doubt I could even be accepted as a volunteer as I can't show up on someone else's schedule.
