JA: I can help you talk to the social security expert. Thanks for coming to JustAnswer. How can we help?
Customer: No I don't qualify for social security cause I can work just not the extra
JA: OK. The social security expert will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the social security expert can help you best.
Customer: I can work my job as stated in my job description
but no extra. I m required to cover direct care shifts when no subject is available which happens alot the direct care is causing the issue. The dr gave me a lifting restriction
JA: Is there anything else important you think the social security expert should know?
Customer: I also suffer from anxiety and my therapist states that I need a 40 hr work week so I can get proper sleep and take care of my condition. I was stable for two years and working full time prior to all these new requirements and now I have back pain and panic attacks due to the uncertainty of this job. I m going to b 5q in june.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the social security expert about your situation and then connect you two.
