Disability case was closed
My disability case must be closed.
Interest keeps old arrears rising endlessly & I have no support potential, income or assets. I continued to work to meet my legal obligations, even years after my Director and General Manager both advised me to take disability.
Now my case must be closed.
I have emailed and left messages making them aware my back and spine are now totally limited and significant pain is preventing me from working...permanent degenerative SPINAL ARACHNOIDITIS and SPINAL STENOSIS I was diagnosed with in 1995 when a drunk driver totaled the car I was driving. And despite a lifetime of exercise therapy, the scoliosis I was under doctor's treatment for till 14 (including leg braces, corrective footwear & ultimately recommending 12 months locked in a body cast- I chose the weightlifting option) continues to worsen. The part-time work I did for years- relying on extreme amounts of painkillers, anti inflammatory and stimulants to be able to shower & get out the door by evening- is no longer possible. I tried to remain employed long after Dr. tested my Residual Functional Capacity and determined I needed disabled parking in 2012.
And the diabetes is another issue... my feet.
I am unemployed. My last 4 checks over a year ago averaged $20. I must lay down frequently, I'm in the bathroom frequently- I haven't left my mom's since April 2018. Nowhere.
I have always been low income, now I am destitute. No friends. No girlfriend. I have no credit cards, no bank accounts, no investments, no telephone, no checking account, no home or residence of my own, my car's engine broke down. The extra-long cane a nurse gave me as a gift and I relied on (I'm 6'5) is broken.
I MEET ALL S.S.I. REQUIREMENTS & FULLY QUALIFY- just waiting for their help and final approval. Again, I have emailed and left messages as to my circumstances, the Supplemental Security Income, and to please close this old arrear account. (DCSE #0002760404) What I have received instead is continued harassment in the form of yet another summons I CAN NOT ATTEND, threats to take my license etc. and a total disregard for federal guidelines and the plight of the poor and disabled. PLEASE COMMUNICATE TO THEM ON MY BEHALF.
Additional information on my disability case:
1) The child lived with my mom and I from age 13 to 18 with no financial help from her mother
2) She suffered abuse while with her mother
3) When I was informed I was not the child's father & I initiated paternity proceedings, the mother fled to NY with the 6 year old for nearly 2 years. There was no contact as we desperately tried to find her.
4) A substantial chunk of this money is not support but interest.
5) 2010 the mother again tried to secretly move the child out of state, then the court CHANGED FULL LEGAL AND PHYSICAL CUSTODY to myself and her grandmother (my mom). She lived with us until moving away to college 2016.
I'm aware these facts have no legal influence on this matter. I stepped up the best I could, continuing trying to hold a job and set a good example. My stacks of Christmas, birthday, and homemade Father's Day cards expressing her love and "appreciation" always remind me I made the right decision. The wonderful child was loved to pieces and provided for, and we keep in touch regularly. Now I need someone of influence to help my closed disability case and Newport News realize relieving this burden, in this isolated instance, is the right thing to do!
Thank you for taking time to hear me.
