The 39-year-old Wilkes-Barre man had Huntington's disease, a debilitating and often fatal disorder that caused tremors in his hands, left him off-balance and suffering from frequent bouts of confusion.

John with the "ticket to work" you can work and collect social security disability. Google it you'll really get nauseous. Also if you have any expenses getting to work related to the disability you get credit for them eg. You can't drive and have to take a cab there and back. You have to remember the majority of the people on social security sre legitimately disabled and need the help.

Get a job. What are all you moochers gonna do when the government teet runs dry??
how is a person a moocher, when they are injured or whatever the disability is, the money that they would receive is their money they paid in?? If the government is broke then my guess is that disabled people didn't break them, maybe if the country learned how to spend money and not waste it like on wars for what reasons they tell us, stop starting trouble and we wouldn't be in a war with who ever? Freedom is not what wars are about anymore, it's about power and money?

Consult with an attorney who "specializes" in S.S. claims one who won't charge unless you get paid. I hope your this person has been off work for at least one year after last being employed. That's one of the rules you could work 20 years and lose let's say both your hands and a leg and if it has not been one year since being empolyed even though you are eligable with an obvious disability you will be denied based on that rule than you have to get a lawyer file an appeal and wait longer only to have the bennifet's you are than approved for be used to pay for that lawyer and appeal and the courts so in a way it's a scam designed to make the courts money off the disabled. It's wrong it's like taking the wheel off someone's wheel chair.
PFA victims get attorneys from the state like Midpenn ect. but disabilty which the law says people have the right to. When disabled people get a lawyer they have to agree to pay the attorney back and no attorney will take a case they know they won't win so in a sense it's like legally stealling from those less fortunate. Basically easy money and I believe they not only should be ashamed but also slapped for ripping off the disabled the courts are guilty too look at this poor guy's case who this topix is about

I'm tired of people like you worrying about someone collecting a check.

That's what's wrong with this country too many prideful people that think they have the right to talk badly about those collecting.
Some deserve it some don't but the topix was about this poor guy getting wrongfully denied.
The rest is a matter of opinion too, to bad if you don't like.
Have fun working which you can't be doing to much of here.
pssss , open your eyes , its illegal discrimination even against those with no eyes and legs , THEIR SCUMBAGS , GET IT . They have to try to hide illegal discrimination .

Regarding lawyers who do SS disability. They get paid by the government if successful. They usually take a cursory look and say they won't charge unless successful before signing on. Let's face it, anybody fighting for SS is probably lacking even a pot to piss in, excuse my French.
No one is ever the victim 100% of the time. Caveat emptor bitch.
lawyer , nothing but back stabbing frauds trying to conceal off knowing direct corruption , SSA was easy direct expose through and through

At $638 per month, the disability check is a white trash man's best friend. In fact, the pursuit of a disability classification is one of the few areas where white trash men demonstrate initiative, follow-through and a true desire for success - even in the face of genuine obstacles, such as not actually being disabled in any way.
A white trash "disability" typically involves a back or neck injury that will never allow the white trash man to work again. Once so disabled, a white trash man will often use his disability check to purchase a big screen tv and monthly satellite service to provide comfort during the period of his convalescence. However, because $638 per month is not quite enough to provide for all of a white trash man's needs, he often must seek a fiance to round out his budget. Similarly, a white trash woman's dream is to become engaged to a white trash man drawing disability, while herself collecting both child support from another man and unemployment. This is often referred to as the white trash "triple crown."

Your legislatures and judicial departments along with all the big shots are responsible for creating the "white trash" opportunity. They created the stuff so why don't you bust there balls???
The rich(big shots) stay rich while the average joe as you say becomes trash because even if your a willing worker you still need welfare and assistance (housing and heating) food medical ect. because you can't survive on min. wage.....
What's it to you if someone collects if not trash than it will still go to someone does it make your mother trash if God forbid she's in an auto accident and some F stick hit her without insurance and now can't work. Is someone in that circumstance "Trash" becareful what you say about others see theres this thing called Karma what goes around also comes around.
I can always tell these comments come from people who don't know the meaning of a hard days work usually they are the lazy asses that sit at a desk all day collecting a salary. Obviously never had to go with out or work some min. wage job or you would not think of others as "trash" I think people like you are just jelous you have to bust your hump while the alleged trash sits on there ass at your expense ha ha

"....The rich(big shots) stay rich while the average joe as you say becomes trash because even if your a willing worker you still need welfare and assistance (housing and heating) food medical ect. because you can't survive on min. wage....."

Since when are you supposed to survive on minimum wage???? If you make minimum wage you're at the BOTTOM of the workforce. Only 1.1% of all employees in America make minimum wage. 60% of that 1.1% are under age 18. 14% of that 1.1% are people trying to raise a family.

If you don't like making the minimum allowed by law, then get off your ass and DO something about it! They can raise the minimum wage to $100 an hour, and you'll STILL be making minimum wage. Because everybody else will be making $1,000 an hour and prices like food and rent will go up accordingly.

That was not fair at all.
They should have clearer rules or basis on denying and approving disability loans or benefits. Things are too be proven and not just based on written documents.

In case you didn't get it the first time Larry go F yourself......If the system worked at all there would be no need for a solution you butt wipe. The point is people who legitimately deserve it get denied like someone who worked all there life payed into the system and loses say a hand or foot. Than you have people who never work a day in there life with a "questionable" dis-abilty and they collect no problem.
I also don't believe your previous post about 1% of the work force being min. wage.....
Liar!!!! any one who believes that shit is so naive you could shove a stick up there ass and they wouldn't even know it was there that's you larry

The current U.S. population is about 317 million. The current number of employed American workers is 144 million.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, among those paid by the hour, 1.6 million Americans earned the prevailing federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour in 2012.(The data for 2013 hasnít been released yet.) Of these, 484,000 are aged 16 to 19.

So ..1.1 percent of the workforce makes minimum wage.

I guess they happen to be the crowd you hang around with.

Up here the local McDonalds starts all their employees at $12 an hour. As does WalMart, KMart, etc. Minimum wage is almost $9.
