I suggest that you apply immediately for Social Security Disability. You may go to your local office or call 1(###) ###-#### Whatever your age the inability to use your hands bilaterally on a regular and continuing basis SHOULD qualify you for SSDI. Since you are not actually going to work, the fact that you are employed should not be a bar to getting SSDI. Every day you wait you are losing money. Once you apply call a disability attorney. I have 20 years of practice in this area. I think you should try for unemployment too, although I am not sure what the rules for unemployment are in your area. SSDI takes several months usually so maybe you can get some unemployment to survive. I suggest, however, that you note that you are only available for part-time work that limits the use of your hands.
