My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: ks
ok here is my question. ive read that if you are applying for ssdi and are working pt(not at a job that you did before the accident) that chances are you will get denied..
i was off work for over a year drawing my ttd, then back in may(end of may) they stopped. the doctors have said yes im disabled, cant do work like i use to(because its to physical), i cant stand for more than a few hours at a time, cant lift more than like 10#'s, cant sit more than a few hours at a time,etc etc. anyway
my lawyer said i should have filed for ssdi the min that my weekly ttd checks stopped, instead i went out and got a part time job trying to work. then about a week or 2 later applied for ssdi.
my lawyer says that i have a really good chance of getting approved, since i was really messed up from my accident.
i cant go back to the type of job that i have done in the last 20 years, im really messed up and not just from the accident.
But i did read somewhere where it said that if you were working while trying to apply for ssdi, that you were wasting your time.
So im just wondering if anyone else out there has ran accross this or not. I mean if you think about it, guess it seems like ya if you can work any type of job that you dont need ssdi. i know that they have what they call the "ticket to work" but im wondering is this for people that have been off work, then felt like they needed to work a little after wards?????
