My doctor put me on temp.disability or a heart condition. What do i have to do to apply for disability?
i went to the emergency room on feb.4. for swelling in my feet and legs. they did ekg, ultrasound, blod test and x rays.prognosis= conjective heart failure. since then, ive been getting tests after tests done by my primary dr. and a heart dr.. I am still scheduled to do more tests this week. Since then, (feb. 4) i havent been able to work. My question is- what can i do to get some help as far as disability benefits? if available, what and when should i have done what as far as applying. I am about to use up all of my vacation and sick leave. when i use that up, my insurance will run out also. my heart dr. said i should be already be on disability. I dont know anything about it. he said to get forms and he will fill iit out. where do i get forms from? I am clueless! is there any kind of help or protection from creditors, or continual medical coverage or anything that may help me? I worked at my job for 10 yrs. i have 4 children and bills stacking up.
