Update: Working People That Fall Sick Past Age 66 do NOT Qualify for Disability

As some of you know, my mom has fallen ill with Stage 4 Colon Cancer. She is a lunch lady that was working at minimum wage to keep a roof over her head after the Real Estate market crash left her with next to nothing on a house she paid on for over 30 years (which was supposed to have been her "compensatory payment" from her husband that left her for another woman after the children were "grown".)

As some of you know, Mom has been "shafted" by her Medicare plan underwritten by United Healthcare, because "as of January 1st, 2014, United Healthcare has refused to renew Medicare contracts with Moffitt and Sloan-Kettering" along with many other key players in the war against cancer.

Now for the latest: Mom cannot return to her job as a food service worker because of her brand new iliostomy AND she is NOT eligible for disability (despite being a working woman at minimum wage) because she is past the "magic" number of 66. (She is 69.)

AND...she is not allowed to have her social security bumped because, according to the Social Security Administration of America:  "That only happens if you are collecting NO social security or minimal social security. (See: drug abusers, woman that can't hold their legs together after 13 children fathered by 13 different fathers, and illegal immigrants granted "amnesty") . Apparently, she is "rolling in the dough" making $735.00 a month which she is now supposed to live on.

Just a REAL TIME, REAL LIFE update on the current "State of Affairs".


  1. :( That's awful!! I really hope there's a loophole somewhere that can change turn things around for her because this is truly heart breaking!! I can't even imagine how hard this is for you and your family... Hugs
