Default CA State Disability Insurance

Link for CA DI:
http://www.edd.ca.gov/disability/dis..._insurance.htm

Instead of a complex disability process, "Your doctor must complete the medical certification of your disability."

You can't work PT.
You have to file within 49 days of stopping work.
You will only be able to collect it for 12 months.
File even if you're currently receiving WC, since you might have a period that you're benefits are interrupted, etc. It will protect your rights even if you don't collect for years.

Default Re: section 8

[I am going to be loosing my home which is in a trust. I can no longer pay my taxes on this home, so eventually I am out of luck. Is it too early to look into section 8 housing.? I am disabled and live with a friend who helps me keep this place together. I just wonder if I will wind up homeless, or if there is hope I can find public housing when they take this home away. I have three years before they will start proceedures to make me leave. ginnie

I'd make an appointment and speak with your local housing authority. It's certainly easier in some parts of the country than others. You usually have to qualify where you live, but once you qualify, you can take the voucher anywhere in the US.

Look in the white page section under government agencies. Your first try should be "Social Service Department."
Also do a Google search for your "county" and/or "city" website. Once you find the website, under "Departments" look for "Housing." Everything pertaining to it should be listed.

Be warned, some cities/towns have a waiting list for "affordable" housing of up to 10 years or more. In my town, the folks on the waiting lists have been on there since 1984.

Good luck!

Look at post #20 of mine in this thread as well! Good luck. I remember you talking about relocating in another thread. You might want to research available housing programs and then relocate where there is no waiting list. You could rent a place short term, apply, and then move in to a section 8 property. Again, use the link from post #20 to research what other benefits are available in your potential relocation spots. They can be substantial!
