Episode 92: SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance)


Becky and Dan are joined by P From Charlotte (@PFromCharlotte) to discuss Social Security Disability benefits. For those of you who aren’t familiar with P, he’s a former firefighter who suffers from PTSD as a result of his time in the fire department. P was subsequently terminated because of his work-related disability. After years of fighting in court with an incompetent attorney P could not financially afford to fight the fire department any longer. Now P relies solely on Social Security Disability benefits. He shares some of his experiences, the application process, rules and obtaining medical insurance while on disability.
P is also a host of A Few Screws Loose (@ScrewsLoosePod), a mental health podcast on The BREAKS Media Network (@theBREAKSmedia).
