The purpose of Disinissues is to share experience and advice about
the processes of obtaining and maintaining Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and long-term disability insurance. The group is targeted mainly towards those with invisible disability due to CFIDS, fibromyalgia, or similar conditions. Benefits professionals are welcome if here to learn or to help.

Although sharing experience with disability claims is indeed supportive, Disinissues is not a support group. Messages about the emotional difficulty of the transition from work to disability, or, generally, what it means to live with disabling illness, are not on-topic. Chit chat or discussion of personal, financial, medical, or health insurance matters, including Medicare, is not permitted.
