Even though you were awarded Social Security Disability, this is not binding on a workers compensation proceeding. You would need to talk to a NY workers compensation lawyer about appealing your NY workers compensation permanency award. Generally, it is not possible to sue state officials who are acting in their judicial capacity.See question

if you are still working, then you cannot gef Social Security Disability which would qualify you for Medicare. Even if you were found disabled today, it would be 29 months before Medicare would start (5 month waiting period plus you have to be receiving SS benefits for 24 months).See question

You have a big problem. SSI and the other benefits you receive are welfare benefits. Generally, if you have resources greater than $2,000 you lose welfare benefits including SSI. The estate planning should have been done before your mother died. Your part of the estate should not have come to you. It should have gone to a Special Needs Trust. It may be too late for that. You need to talk to an attorney who does probate in this area and who knows Special Needs Trust law. Good luck to you.See question

When you are injured at work you often have two claims. One is a workers compensation claim. Two, there is a potential for a personal injury claim. However, the personal injury must be caused by a third party (such as the manufacturer of the machine) and not your employer.

Doctors and social workers can be subpoenaed but expert witnesses such as doctors usually have to be paid for their time in court. This is true for a court proceeding or a workers compensation proceeding. You can contact the doctor's office and inquire about his in-court billing rate. You may be shocked.See question

In Virginia, if you hurt at work and if the insurance company accepts the claim, the insurance is supposed to issue you an Award Agreement which you sign and send back. Then, the claims adjuster signs and the Agreement is sent to the state agency called the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission. Upon receipt the Commission will issue you an award for compensation and lifetime medical care for your injury. Call the Commission at 1-877-664-2566 for the status of your Award. If you have problems, call a workers' compensation lawyer.See question

There is a two prong test for a waiver: (1) where you at fault in causing the overpayment and (2) can you afford to pay it back.
In your case, you were a minor when the overpayment occurred so I cannot see that you will be held to be at fault. Since you have no income, you probably can satisfy the test of not being able to pay it back.

She applied for disability and was denied because my father makes too much money. How do I go about helping her get her disability and apply for Medicare?
You said she was denied because her husband makes too much money. If she can show they are separated his income should not disqualify her for SSI which is a welfare disability program. As such if they are together then his income will be deemed available to her and will disqualify her.See question
I am currently engaged and the only thing keeping us from getting married is that my Medical and Medicare will get taken away. I am a heart and kidney transplant so my expenses are very high and my France's work insurance doesn't cover my doctors.
I guess you could be getting both Medicare and Medicaid. As we know Medicare does not provide 100% coverage. Especially, it is a problem when a claimant has expensive prescriptions and that is why you may need Medicaid. While Medicare is not means-tested Medicaid is means-tested meaning it is a welfare benefit. Thus, you could lose the Medicaid by getting married because your spouse's benefits will be deemed available to you -- when you get married.See question
