I have been told 2 time I can't get disability. Now I'm waiting

Customer Question

I have been told 2 time I can't get disability. Now I'm waiting on a hearing with a judge. I am no longer getting paid from my employer but am still a employee of theirs and now having to pay for my insurance. I was thinking of quitting to get my 401 so I can pay my bills. Will my case still go forward and I will be still getting a hearing? What should I do. I have doctors saying I can't work

Hello, you should wait for the hearing.
Don't resign. Your 401k is not affected.
Sometimes disability benefits can be expedited by local counsel having the focus and contacts.
