I have been given the ok from my doctor. My doctor has filed all paper work. Two doctors have made the same conclusion that I am disabled.

    Answered . Ideally you need to get an attorney to assist you with your Social Security Disability application. One condition of unemployment may be that you are ready, able, and willing to work which of course contradicts your SSD application which is based on not being able to work. On the other hand, you need to pay your bills, an attorney specializing in Social Secuirty who works on a contingent fee basis would be the best solution.
