    OK Folks,

    I just got off the phone with the Dept of health and human Services dept of
    Social Security. It appears as if there are two options for folks who are to
    sick to work and can’t afford medicine or a visit to the doctor.

    1. Social Security Disibility: You must have worked for at least ten years
    and have a doctor say you can not work for at least a year to receive benefits.

    2. SSI: You must have a doctor state you can not work for at least 12 months
    and you have to have less than $2,000 in the bank or in stock and bonds or a
    redeamable life insurance policy. This also qualifies you for Medicade which
    pays for your meds and doctor visits.

    You can call the Social Security office at 1-800-772-1213 for bulletins on how
    to apply. They are also going to send me four booklets for me to read up on and
    try to get smart to help you all out.

    Regards,
    Jake
