Hello @Hydrocephalus thank you for opening this discussion. I'm sorry you're having trouble getting SSI, unfortunately they don't make access to a lot of government programs easy. Let me tag some other members who can potentially share some advice with you.

Hi everyone, how are you doing? Do any of you have any experience applying for and/or being denied SSI? Were you able to appeal the decision? Can you share any advice on navigating the application process?

I have had it since I was 18, and I'm 42 now. My disability is Spina Bifida and I don't even remember applying for it, unless my mom applied for it for me, I know nothing about the process.
