I was denied SSI four times. I now receive twice-monthly surveys from an independent company asking how my experience with the Social Security Administration was? “IT SUCKED” was obviously not the response they were looking for because the little reminder cards keep-a-comin’. Mind you, all correspondence is tagged with the reminder that they are in strict compliance with the “Paperwork Reduction Act of blah, blah, blah…” Goody for them.
What I want to know is how do they have the BALLS to go on a vacation to a resort in Arizona, hire an independent company to produce useless surveys and still deny SSI to someone with a disease that is progressive and inevitably devastating?
To top it all off, my daughter has Factor V Liden, a blood clotting disorder. She suffered a massive stroke at 18 which left her in a coma for 2 weeks and rendered her unable to speak for 6 months. Thankfully, my ex-husband had good health insurance, because I shudder to think what would have happened to her if we had to rely on the government for help. She will probably never be able to collect a dime of the money she has paid into Social Security upon her retirement because there will be NOTHING LEFT.
How much more are we supposed to take? I just don’t get it…
