I got approved ror social security right away. At the time my health was going way down.

I've been researching it. I wasn't approved when I applied initially. I was assigned an ssa attorney in the hospital . I was ashamed to tell anyone I needed help with the application. I still do to be honest. As well as reading other things. I eventually got a job and moved on with my life. My productivity and attention span declined prior to diagnosis. I used to be a really good underwriter, but I no longer have the brain power.

I was able to get SS with the help of a disability attorney. Took about 8 months. But I also think my age also helped. Was 61 when I started the process.

Getting on Social Security for HIV is almost hard to do now. It can still be done, but it isn't as easy as it used to be 30 years ago. Now you have to have more than just HIV to qualify.

Consider moving to West Virginia. They approve SSA cases very quickly.
