    I had a question about disability.

    I applied for ssi in 2002 and am just now finally getting my hearing.

    Someone who is receiving ssdi said that because I have had to wait this long that I should get ssdi and medicare, is she right?

    I don't know what would be better ssi or ssdi.

    Thanks in advance for any info you can give me. Pamela

    Thanks very much for the info.

    I hope I do get the ssdi instead of the ssi.

    I would appreciate any more info on this subject any of you can give.

    Thanks in advance Pamela

    for medicare if you are approved your ssi/andor ssdi..plus you will automatically qualify for medi-cal/or medi-caid if you qualify for ssi...


    they will tell you what you qualfiy for already...

    do you have an attoreney....this is taken too long to get a hearing....

    good luck

    and always call your attoerny if you have questions..and your local office should be able to tell you if you qualify for ssi or ssdi..
