" I am at the hearing stage for SSI for NF. I am on state disability currently for NF.I got the tradional 2 tundowns for SSI and now await a dissission.It takes a LONG time.And it depends on how NF effects you.mine has put me into useing a cane and severe pain so I have state aid, no telling how the SSi hearing will come out.But I also has fibrmialga as well and migraines so I don't know if it will be decided on the NF or a combo of all of them.

Hope that helps "

" I got ssi the first time around. All I had to do was send in my paper work, 6mo later I got a call saying I got it. I know that I am one of a few to get it the first time around. I do have NF, and a lot of other things wrong that are caused by the NF. As you probably know NF causes us to have a million other things wrong with us, it is up to our DR's to know that the problems we have are because of the Nf. Good luck to you. "
