    I have Fibromyalgia that seems to be worsening and I have heard so many different stories and still not so sure it is a good idea. Especially if it affects the husbands income or my ability to keep savings climbing. I don't want to do anything to keep us from going toward retirement or regaining our strength to live longer. Climbing under the disability curtain may take the walls down. If you know what I mean!!!

    I am on ssd.It does not affect your husbands pay.They do not even count his income at all.

    As far as savings annuities stocks and bonds it does not matter.They do not look into any of that.

    The only thing that they consider once you have won is whether or not your covered under your husbands heath coverage.Thats because if you are you can not carry two heath insurances.

    We have savings and it did not affect any of it.You must remember this is not charity cause your ill.It is money that they took out of your paycheck every week.You earned this money .

    Hope this answers your questions.
