Publisher's Summary

The current U.S. Social Security Disability Income system (SSDI) grants benefits for those who cannot continue to earn an income through employment, due to chronic or terminal illnesses they may develop, that disables them physically or mentally. This is certainly a wonderful thing and it has saved many of its recipients from losing their homes and reasonable quality of life for their families and even from losing their lives early, by providing opportunity for continued medical care that would otherwise be impossible for them to obtain.
With this said, there are also those policies practiced or enforced by the social security disability program for example that cause deserving applicants to be denied (the main subject of this audiobook) and in some cases, less-deserving or undeserving applicants to be accepted by the same benefits program. I wish to point out some of these policies, within the chapters of this audiobook but I endeavor to do so, without appearing to be casting dispersions on the SSDI system as a whole, which is a wonderful program and a privilege for disabled citizens.
I sincerely believe it is extremely important for legitimately disabled Americans to be cared for in a country that takes pride in helping those who are less-fortunate - not those who are looking for a free ride or for a chance to scam the system but who are truly and sincerely in need.
It is my sincere hope that the words I offer in this audiobook, contain proper perspective and that nothing contained herein, is perceived as unnecessary ranting on my part but that my thoughts will rather add some intelligent, logical perspective to this very difficult subject.

A little helpful??

I wish there had been more advice on how to possibly speed up the process or other reasons why it takes so long to get through the process. Personally I feel they deny on purpose so test you'll give up and they won't have to pay you. I also believe that's why so many do is because they can't survive with no income. Sounds like it almost worked in James case.
I feel he was a bit monotone in his reading. Not much reflection in his voice made it hard t keep listening.
