    The SSA has openly invited comments on current plans to update and revise the rules for evaluating Immune Disorders and Mental Disorders. The deadline for us to comment is:

    <b>June 16</b> for the Mental Disorders
    <b>July 8</b> for the Immune Disorders

    I hope everyone will take the opportunity to explore their plans - they may help or hurt us.

    You can find this information at the ssa gov website under Disability Programs - "What's New?"

    Disability and SSI
    Do you qualify? | Apply for disability benefits online
    Already receiving benefits | Ticket to Work
    <b>More disability information</b>

    It takes you to the Disability Programs page. The "What's New?" is on the sidebar to the right side of the screen.
