Myositis and disability, social security

Myositis, a rare, autoimmune muscle disease may cause temporary or even permanent disability leading to the need to file for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). But, what if you have never worked? What if you have not worked in a such a time that you are not eligible for SSDI? This is where SSI (Supplemental Security Income) comes in to help.

Eligibility for SSI is subject to income and asset limits.  Learn more about financial eligibility: www.disabilitysecrets.com/topics/financial-eligibility-ssi.htm

Did you work but received low wages? You may be eligible for both SSI and SSDI. Learn more: www.disabilitysecrets.com/page5-43.html

And please, do not be ashamed if you need assistance. You paid into these programs, so use them if you need them.
