Jk –

Thanks you very much for your reply and information. I had asked the social worker two months ago if she could help me find out about this. When I was declared disabled it was made retroactive to when I retired from my job 8/1/15, so I will hit the two year mark in two months.

But I am not low-income. I have a good pension, along with SS would be great except the I have to pay $7500 per month for the nursing home, plus medical copay, transportation costs as well as the bills for keeping my house. That puts me $1500 to $2000 in the hole ry month. The outgo exceeds my income.

It is very soon going to get to the point that I won’t be able to afford proper care, and I am panicking. Besides CIDP, I also have bad eyesight due to retinal bleeding, so looking up things is a real issue.

Take care and thanks again.
