My husband, stage four with lots of mets, was approved back in November 2009, for ssdi but we got several letters stating there is a "six month waiting period"., so his first check does not start until May 2010. I keep reading about this "special dispensation" and have called ssi and they still claim "there are no exceptions to the rule". We live in Mass., are these rules different by state to state, how can I speed up these benefits, we have had no income since last October, I am using a trust fund account that is in my name and my daughters. I cannot wait until May??????
