    tell them you have filed for ssi/and orssdi...the have a social security advocate...tell them you want a congressional inquiry...they can not, not, make a decision in your favor,

    but they can expediate the decision...you will need to fill out a form from their office so they can inquiry about your case....it will help you file to move off the desks from the bottome of the pile....

    and once you do get an approval they can give you an emergency check on the spot in your local ssa office...up to$999.00
    i had that done myself so i know it can be done...

    you can go to work if you need to as well, even if it is a temporary job..if ou can try to keep it under the sga amount a month...and as my attorney said it works in my favor that i tried it and i just couldn't do the work for what ever your reasons were...and i did draw my unemployment after my sdi ran out while i was waiting for a hearing...they do not care about the unemployment...they care about worker's comp...and disability check payments to offset things...

    i understand that if can be very difficult to go to work any amount of time...but i had to do it for a means to an end....i have a child and i was not getting child support payments and i had sold everything i could..my precious 96 mach 1 mustang...ticked about that...anyways used up savings...i was smart and kept some out of the bank in a safe place...because ou are only allowed acertain amount of liquid assets in the bank etc...you have to be smarter than them....

    call salvation army, churches, i think in some areas of the country you can dial 511...look it up on your local county for help on the internet...

    you don't have your bio done...so i don't know if you have children....and i don't know if you are not even to do a job because of being a quadrapalegic...so i don't know what to say except try any type of temp agencies for extra income...

    good luck
