A short list of sites of benefits to disabled veterans

What to do to get ready for your hearing

Obtaining Health Insurance and Long Term Care Insurance
This is a problem for the disabled, and for all of us.
The US government has some excellent sites that will help you use and understand the Social Security Disability system. But you must read what you find here along with the information in the private sites to get the full picture, since the government sites tell you only the Administration's official position. This is fine for noncontroversial issues, but you can hardly expect them to tell you how to beat them in a disability claim.

I can't tell you what will be on these websites because they change every day. But I can tell you that it will be written by some sharp people who know a lot about Social Security. If you want to get close to the truth, after you have studied what the Administration says and what the mainstream media says, come here and read and think carefully.
Reforming the US Health Care Delivery System
Anyone who is disabled and uninsured is at daily risk of incurring a $200,000 medical bill tomorrow. And if you think you have insurance, think again. What if you get fired tomorrow, and develop a health problem that makes you uninsurable and unhireable, like diabetes? Even if you are able to afford COBRA, it will run out in a few months, and you can wake up in the hospital with them owning your bank accounts, house, cars, everything.
