Disability options

I have been on work furlough since March. I manage restaurant business. I was diagnosed with afib in February. I also have CHF With a 30% ejection fraction. I filed for disability social security.  Is there a state program in California I can file with,while my SSI is pending.

    Hi- I looked on line and the suggestion was that while waiting you should contact your local Department of Social Services (DSS).  Try to speak ith an Adult services worker and see if you can be referred to local assistance programs. They can often point you in the right direction.  Also, there is General Assistance or General Relief in some areas that pays a limited amount. If you have filed for SSI , you may be able to get a cash payment through the  Interim Public Assistance Program. You might want to contact the  Department of Vocational Rehabillitation. Also,Temporary Assistance for Needy FAmilies (TANF) may be able to help.  There are also food stamps .  Churches and charites may be able to give some temporary help if you contact them. Hope these ideas help.  Love, Jeanne
