I understand you may have feelings toward your "dub" sister, but truly, social security is extremely hard to obtain, and many times requires an attorney to get it. It also requires a doctor who is in complete agreement with her ability or lack of ability to work. Often SS will have their own docs exam a peson. It can be a very difficult process and an exhausting one.stories of how easy itis to get SS are false.I know jws do tend to be "users' and maybe that is what you are saying. I have known jws to "pioneer" while on disability. But they will get caught esp if they answer the questions SS asks truthfully.
If a person is disabled to the point they can't work, they are entitled to disability from social security if they paid into it. As bickerchic said, the amount is so very low here in the states, it seldom covers even the rent (you would not believe how many people exist on 350-a month or less).Even if you had an extremely well paying job, you will not get much from SS. The cost of medicine so high, some meds can run into several hundred dollars for a 30 day supply.
It is not against the law for a widow to draw her husbands SS if she meets their requirments.
no need to envy her.
Be glad you are able bodied, can go to college and get a great degree and make some money and have a nice life.
She is not gettng rich off SS.
