Because you are disabled.

File for disability benefits.

Appeal your case.

How you presented your initial application was the best you could do at that time given what you knew and were told.

But, if you were not successful, appeal (1) because you are disabled and (2) because you can improve on your presentation.

Social Security Will Spy On You

In my book, How To Get Social Security Disability & SSI Disability, at page 26, I advise the following regarding social media:

“Don’t use social media, Facebook or You Tube, etc., in ways that can contradict or confuse your claim of disability.”

I go on to say:

“Remember what may appear clear to you may be taken out of context or distorted.  Posting five or ten-year old photos of yourself skiing, may make you feel good, but can lead the office of the inspector general to a different conclusion.”

Now, The New York Times and Huffington Post report that the Trump Administration has pressured the Social Security Administration to develop a program to monitor social media particularly for people collecting disability benefits.
