PLEASE HELP! I HAVE NO OTHER OPTIONS!!!!!
I'm a veteran. I was unemployed until May 2022 and finally landed a courier job ( no benefits but hours) No sooner than I started work, my retina detached and I had to have major surgery at the West LA VA.
Here's where my situation is.
-Can't get unemployment because I'm considered to be disabled
-Can't get CA SDI because the wages submitted were from a school even though I haven't worked there in some time and apparently school wages disqualify you from getting state disability. (At least here in CA)
- Applied for Social security (SS) and the decision will take 3-6 months. Was denied supplemental SS in the interim because I have a 10 year old car that apparently has a value of 8k and they see that as an assett although I need it for years to come and can't sell it.
In summary, I have no family that can help, my health is temp. no good, can't work & can't pay rent because I'm out medically ( no benefits to help) I Could be EVICTED soon and lose everything.
I desperately need short term help while my retina heals.
