    I agree, DD. It's not our place to decide who should have SSDI or not.

    There is a phrase I see often: "Be kind to others, for you don't know what they are dealing with."

    Sucking taxpayers money is not ok. As a US citizen, and a taxpayer, I want to make sure my tax money go for right reasons.

    For SSDI, he or she paid $$$$ in SS tax when they had a job in the past, prior disability started.

    Althorough, the hearing loss is very thin pie of overall SSDI's disability, also outside of high functioning deaf people, the hearing loss often to have multi-disabilities as well, even they didn't signing at all.

    It isn't my thing to judge on someone whoever have SSDI or not since they have many problems that I don't know, so it is none of my business.

    You never know about this person since he or she isn't going to disclose about their medical condition, so medical issues are pretty confidential, so I stay out of their zone.

    My SSDI isn't related to deaf so I have medical issues that preventing me from working functionally or completing the college on time.

    HUD = House & Urban Developement

    SSDI = Social Security Disability Insurance

    Also, there are many low income workers depends on HUD, however Section 8 and housing projects are limited due to funding issue for many years.

    Are you talking about the people who are severely multihandicapped and don't even have the mental abilty to sign? Not all people with multiple/additional disabilties are severely affected

    Yes, also adults can be affected due to disease and aging.

    you need to man up.

    trade your truck for a smaller used car. that will look cool in Alabama among the big boys.
    Get a part-time job. Retail, overnight work, anything to get your ass off.
    move in with your parents or relatives for free and save on rent.

    Girls like men who work. not on federal financial assistance pay by your old work credits.

    My ex-sister in law was hearing. She had a history of heart congestive. Her doctor told her to not work ever and not raise stress level. She was forced to be put on SSDI for the rest of her life. If she does work, she will have another heart attack. She did take care of herself, but her heart couldn't take it anymore. She died at 35 years old and didn't even work and left two kids.

    As for food stamp, I am a bit behind food stamp policies. This OP cannot get food stamp unless he has children.

    SSA will probably cut SSI which is from our taxdollars paying taxes if you owe the IRS (or none if you get a refund!).

    SSDI is from when we work. Dunno what it is call on your paystub payroll tax, FICA tax, etc.
