I had my disability hearing July 18th I am 62 and have MDD AND PTSD After questioning me the judge ask the VE if I could do my prior jobs the VE answered no and no to all other questions about jobs.

I'm at getting ready to apply for early retirement due to the fact I am no longer able to physically work. I was advised to apply for disability as well. Should I apply for both at the same time or is one recommended before the other?
If you are 62 apply for both. You will get Early Retirement right away and then you can ask for a disability determination at the same time. If you prevail, then your Early Retirement benefits will be increased.See question
My fiance found out he has Stage 4 bone cancer, but people say if we get married he will lose his benefits. He was forced into early retirement at the age of 63.
If you are talking about welfare programs like SSI and Medicaid, he could lose these benefits because welfare programs consider the entire family assets and income when determining eligibility.See question

Yes, she can get a lawyer. But a lawyer will be difficult to get since there is no pot of money to pay an attorney from. Also, many Social Security lawyers do not take overpayment cases. I also understand Legal Aid will not take these cases. She may be entitled to a waiver of the overpayment if (1) she was without fault in getting an overpayment and (2) she cannot afford to pay back $8,200.00.See question

Your mother is your payee but is not using the money for you. Immediately go to the Social Security office and ask for a new payee who will use the money to help you. Social Security does not know this unless "you" tell them.See question

Medicaid is a welfare benefit. Your inheritance may disqualify you going forward but since you did not have it before it should not affect the past.See question
Worked for 2 yrs,had to quit job cause of extreme pain, was diagnosed by my 2 drs with rhuematoid arthritis and fibromyalgia,bursitis in knees and ankles,can I still apply for ssi even if I get this check form my divorce settlement?
SSI is only $735 a month. It is welfare disability. As such any other income reduces it. So, if your alimony exceeds $735 a month, you are out of luck. Sorry!See question
Would a Court Order in OR for '50% plus One Night' child time of a joint Custody make me a Payee for SSA child's benefits?
You can request to be named payee based on this order. The custodial parent is generally the payee. Of course, the money has to used solely for the benefit of the child.See question
