    Got good news in the mail yesterday. I'm approved for long term state disab. Now I'm waiting to hear from Soc. Sec. Disab. I'm on a 5 month waiting period, so I'll be broke for 5 months, but then I get back pay and a check each month until I reach retirement age. (I'm 56 now)

    It's celebration time here! Whooo-hoooo!

    I was a teacher for the past 17 years, and we have state retirement and state disability for public workers like teachers, fire and police dept. It's called PERSI.

    I don't know how it works for teachers in other states, or workers whom were not state workers.

    I'm happy the process was done very quickly! Perhaps it was because I had a masters in ed. and am 56 yrs. old and had so many things that went wrong with me when I hit menopause at 46???
    Thanks for your well-wishes.
