Customer Question
I've just been diagnosed...

I've just been diagnosed with pseudo bulbar palsy which leads to als. I went to the social security office yesterday and was told that social security disability was not available to those over 65. I was also told that at my age of 72 I was collecting too much social security. I can currently working part time but don't know this disease is going to progress.

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

I was at Mayo Clinic last week and doctors said it could be a few months before I loose my voice and others symptoms set in. I am obviously worried.

that is correct. SSD is only available for those under 65 prior to retirement age

it would be odd to collect too much social security.

you are allowed to work part time
