SPECIAL EDITION - THE latenight GRIPE SHOW
So you say you have a disability, yeah me too! All I can say is so what, sure it sucks and lots of things are not fair. We still must live life. It comes down to what we are going to do with our life. I have spent years bumbling around since I acquired my brain injury. I did everything out of order, I got some of the worst help you could imagine. By the time I understood what was happening my whole life was gone. Almost everyone I ever loved was gone. My life was in ashes.
But again so what. All I can do is kick my own ass for my part in this. But now I am ready to live a life that I value. One that fits what I want. Ready to open myself up for those relationships that make life worth living. Do the things that my heart tells me. It is going to be different than before because I am a different person. But you know what it is going to be better, I am going to love deeper, care more and laugh harder. Everything I have been through living with my disability is part of what makes me great.
Join in tonight gripe away maybe some tough love thoughts can help you, maybe not but at least we can share, complain our heart out and have a good laugh doing it. YOU KNOW YOU WANNA JOIN SO DO

For many years, as far back as the 1970’s lots of people have always been turned down when they applied for disability. The social security office seemed, in the past, to be no help at all. It is now, after the Millennium, 2015, and sick people, people who are legitimately disabled, are still being denied Disability Benefits.
The good news is, there is a way to get approved for your disability on your first attempt.
And …did you know that if your TOTAL HOUSEHOLD INCOME is less than $744.00 per month, that you automatically qualify for SSI if you are age 65 and over?

Nearly one-third of U.S. workers will become disabled at some point in their career before reaching retirement, according to a 2009 estimate from the Social Security Administration. Yet the federal agency says that 70% of employees aren't covered by private long-term disability insurance. Social Security disability benefits are available for certain disabled workers, but the average payout is only 40% of a person's income and the allowance rate for initial claims can be as low as 30% in some areas of the U.S.
Individual disability insurance is truly a basic concept. It is an insurance product designed to replace anywhere from 45-60% of your gross income on a tax-free basis should a sickness or illness prevent you from earning an income in your occupation. Your most important asset is your ability to bring home a paycheck, DI makes sure that regardless of any adverse changes to your health, you are able to provide for yourself and your family. Every disability insurance policy from every insurance company is very different, this is not a product to simply shop for the most competitive rate. To buy the cheapest disability insurance policy on the market is to throw money away. The odds of getting paid a monthly benefit under a cheap contract may be significantly lower than receiving benefits from a quality contract. The goal of this show is to provide you with information to make an educated decision on your own. I will provide you with information regarding the major features of a disability insurance policy so that you may better understand how to read a disability insurance policy.
