    Hate to tell you but someone who went through the disability thing, it's not immediate it can take up to a year or longer to get approved and that's if you get approved on the FIRST Try, which is RARE. You have to hire a disability lawyer, go through the process of proving that you can't work, so will need to get ALL documentation from doctors. Then you have to wait for a court date and right now you are looking at probably 10-14 months, then you have an appeals process. I have known some people's have taken more then 2 years. Had a buddy literally DIE at work, spent week in ICU and couple weeks rehab and got denied disability, don't get much more disabled then DEAD

    Also if your heart is bothering you again NOW..that should be an indicator you shouldn't be behind the wheel.
    BEST OF LUCK TO YOU

    I listen to consumer affairs radio shows and podcasts. I've heard several times something like 75% of disability claims submitted to Social Security are rejected the first time. Don't give up if SocSec says "no".

    This is not always the case.
    I had a friend who got his first try without an attorney and it took only a couple of months.

    An attorney sometimes takes longer because they get paid by percentage and the longer it takes the larger the onetime payout will be so they drag it out.

    Sorry to hear about your condition, but for the record Trump didn't do anything Big Pharma has been exempt from liability LONG before COVID.

    This is from 2018, but I have found other information saying this goes back as far as 2013.

    As someone who has Afib there's other options that you can use and keep the CDL also. The biggest is called an ICD or pacemaker only. The FMCSA allows with a waiver for you to keep your CDL

    There is hope

    last time i went through chf with the heart got ss immeidately, im sure was luck maybe but 6 months later was cleared back to work and had to pay back the ss, this will be last resort but seems like with heart issues they hand out ss pretty easy

    With ssdi and this is coming from someone who has been on it now going on 18 years. If you're able to get back to work before a year passes then you do have to repay the money however if you have been on it longer term like me you can get what is called a ticket to work and then you don't have to repay it as you were able to recover from the injury that put you on ssdi. What is going to be funny about mine is the concussions I suffered for over a decade now are the reason why I can get back out there. My neurologist determined that my last seizure in 2018 and the concussion as I had it in my house on a cement floor literally broke all connections my focal points had with my brain. They can still be detected in an EEG however they are not affecting my brain anymore. In my neurologists practice history they've seen this happen 5 times all with TBI caused epilepsy our brains literally keep breaking the pathways for the seizures.
