He has aspergers and mild bipolar, and while he has tried a couple of jobs he has not done well at them and then he quits. He is, and always has been a very emotional person who does not tolerate stress very well. People do not usually realize this because he has a flat affect and he does not usually talk about his feelings, and he also does not realize when he should and should not talk about his feelings. Nor does he understand the feelings of his supervisor. So, he usually has trouble at his work even though he has had at least one darned good supervisor who bent over backwards to help him. Now, I found the food stamps application hard to get through, as the questions were had to understand. I am thinking that I might need help to fill out an application for ssi, but mostly when I google it I get people who want to help him apply for ssdi, and he has only worked for a few months over the last few year so he does not qualify. I am 62 and he is 23, and he will not be able to rely on me forever. I did get him into section 8 housing almost 2 years ago and I got the food stamps application filled out last week. Does anyone have any advice on getting help filling out ssi forms? Because I just recently found out that there are 2 types of disability and I do NOT know what I am doing!
