My Mood: Just got approved for disability payments

Default Just got approved for disability payments

I got the letter today saying that their review panel had determined that I am disabled, and am therefore eligible for disability insurance payments. I was kind of surprised, that they'd turned it around so quickly since I only submitted the paperwork about a month ago, and that I was approved on the first try.

This is a huge relief, the payment is a higher than what I was getting on Ontario Works, which is the most basic form of welfare available. It also means I'll get vision and dental coverage, both of which I badly need.

And ironically, while I couldn't work while I was on Ontario Works, I can work while I'm ODSP, so I'm going to look for some type of part time job.

I'm so relieved.

As some of you may know, my blog is currently off-line due to some problems at my previous site host. I'm working with my web master to rebuild and get back on-line.

That's great news! I remember how incredibly relieved I felt when I found out I was approved. I hope finding a job and working goes well for you.
