The Social Security Disability program provides benefits to persons with severe disabilities whose impairments prevent them from performing gainful work. In each of the six states within the Chicago Region (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin), claims for the federal disability program are administered through the state. These State Disability Determination Services (DDS) agencies are 100 percent federally funded and make their decisions according to federal rules and regulations.

My disability was taken from me and for 6 months or so Mr Williams at social security in Traverse City has been working on my case to see if I was going to be reinstated well a few days ago he told me that they were finished and recommended that I be reinstated. I have now lost my apartment and everything I owned just like I told him I would if I didn't have my disability back by the 3rd, this is so wrong. I don't drink alcohol and I am not a drug user all I wanted was to go on living my life but now because he didn't listen to me I have lost everything. This is so rediculous, I see drunks and drug addicts blow every penny they get from disability every month and they never go through what I've been through in the last 6 months. Now that I have lost everything what am I supposed to do? I am totally lost, I can hardly walk and feel like I have been wronged in so many ways and all because I tried to work again. Well you can rest assure that if I am ever iven the opportunity to try to work again that I will not even try not that I could do it anyways because all this has done is messed my mind up more than it all ready was. I am 53 yrs old and crying my eyes out as I write this. Thanks for assisting me in being homeless and in loosing everything I owned. I am so ready to just give up.
