Qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

Greetings! My name is Carolyn Magura, and my website is I have been on Long Term Disability (LTD) since 2001, and on Social Security disability Insurance (SSDI) since about 2002. While most folks who apply for SSDI are turned down about 60% of the time in their first try, and about 80% in their second try, I was the first person in my state to qualify for coverage the first time around, in under 30 days!!!

What, you say, is my illness/disease? Good question. It could have been anything, for the process I use, and am committed to helping others succeed with, works with ANY disease/illness. Mine is Multiple Sclerosis. I have had MS for over 45 years - misdiagnosed for most of those years - and am finally in what is called the secondary progressive stage.

This Blog is my way of sharing my thoughts, feelings and ideas with others who are travelling similar paths. I'd love to hear your opinions and thoughts too. For help with your situation, go to the website:

I too am on soc.sec.disability.I was also approved for soc.sec.the first time,but it took 3 months.I was also receiving a check from long term to make up the difference so I would still be getting 60% of my salary,but my ex applied for my daughter to get a check from my soc.sec.because she can draw more from mine.Even though the check will go to his house(if she ever gets it started)long term counts that as income in MY HOUSE,so they made me pay every penny back,and stopped all checks from them,so now all I get is soc. sec.disability,and it is NOT 60% of my salary.There should be something I could do to get the money they owe me.

Bravo for a great blog. I too have MS and have been managing to keep on top of the disease for the past 38 years. You have so much great information for those seeking disability and just plain old knowhow in dealing with some of the complications which the disease can thrust upon us.
