My husband will be a double amputee due to diabetes as of tomorrow. He will require 24 hour care, we cannot afford it, and medicare will not provide it. I will be forced to quit my job to care for him, but his social security income alone will not cover our bills. Can I apply to social security as a caregiver for him? Please help!
My dearest msdrchel,
Contact your Congressman or Senator. Be brief, very courteous, state facts, and have the documents ready to prove how you have been treated.
Failing a resolution there, talk to an attorney. They will usually handle these cases on contingency, if they know you have a legitimate claim.
Also, talk to your local Department of Social and Health Services. They handle this sort of thing all the time.
