ah, of course, friend's mom had that; wondering about this neighbor, since don't know how old he is but still think there's a lot of misunderstanding between SSI/SSD - a friend who just finished cancer treatment and think was getting disability through her work - or thing is, was it SSD because she'd worked - anyway has been made to go back to work but on a 9 mo. trial basis, but there's a limit to the number of hours she can work and continue to get her check - whichever it is, not sure if that's why they've not given her any for what I think is week after next and they've already definitely said she can't go back to the job she had before, which was I believe the highest paying full-time - which I guess is a given - job, under some type of management position - in the store, because she had throat cancer, with radiation, so said her saliva will never go back to normal, so she has to sip water all the time, which she can't do in any but one position in the store, which is where they put here, but I just have a feeling they're not too happy about it; anyway, she's saying she's on SSI - because of her minimal income but then she says they won't give her disability because she has too much money, which I thought that was SSI not disability, at least unless it's for disability, which I still thought had asset/income limitations

Being a federal employee really didn't have any perks from my personal experience and I was just as thankful to get SSD. An attorney told me many years
that it's next to impossible to sue any arm of the government. I'm beginning to
believe him. Anyway, thank you for clearing that misunderstanding up for me Ladylee1115.

Actually if you are FRA and your SS is minimal and your assets (aside from the home you live in) don't exceed $2k you can receive SSI as a supplement with no disabling conditions.

LAS 911, you would have to be determined disabled to get SSI, if you are 62 or older, or 60 or older and a widow ( not divorced Widow)
you may collect SS retirement.

Kathylee53 , for the rest of us who are not Federal Employees, we would not be aware of FERS and who is eligible.
Most of us are not eligible. I meant that comment for the rest of us who would not know what FERS is.

I think Ladylee115 was directing that to everyone who reads these posts. I read her response and, at first, had NO IDEA what FERS meant. I was VERY happy that she came back to the site and educated everyone here that might not know that it was only available for federal employees. I am sure she is sorry and her intent was not to offend....

Ladylee115, were you directing that answer to me about FERS? I am fully aware that FERS is for federal employees, and it just so happens that I was a FERS employee until I suffered a heart attack, on the job, no less.
