Help me understand Disability benefits (social security)?

I am a late 50's year old woman living in Ohio, with chronic diabetes, stroke, and other ailments. I have been employed for the past 20 years, but it is getting exceedingly difficult to do any work. I want to know if I quality for disability benefits (like a monthly check?) even if I own my own home, and I own some other real estate properties. Who can qualify? What are other things that might disqualify me? Will receiving Disability benefits exclude me from receiving Social Security benefits when I reach the age of 65? Tanks.

Tax obligation for housekeeper?

I have an occasional housekeeper who used to work for me very intermittently, and now it's becoming more of a regular thing. I estimate that in 2014 I will end up paying her approx. $2500. She is eager for me to report this income officially and do whatever my legal obligations are re: social security or whatever. I'm totally willing to do it - but have no idea how. [more inside]

Elderly mother's finances. Help.

Social Security Disability Applications

I'm seeking real-life experiences in applying for Social Security Disability. Yesterday I completed my on-line application for Social Security Disability. I haven't been able to work since February and have been receiving first short-term and now long-term disability payments from my prior employer (I no longer have a job to go back to even if I were able to work). My long-term disability is approved in 3 month chunks, but since there has been no improvement in my condition, I don't have any reason to believe it wouldn't continue to be approved although it's stressful to me when those reapprovals come due.

How Can I Get A Copy Of My SSA Consultive Exam Report?

I have a SSA Consultative Exam (mental) for disability determination next week. Since I don't have a doctor of my own, or health insurance, or an income the NJ DOL is providing one for me to see. There is a form for me to fill out that authorizes the release my SSA Consultative Exam Report. I don't have a doctor of my own, nor a way to get a doctor myself. How can I get a copy for myself then?

Catch 22

Catch 22: I am applying to Social Security for disability. I need my birth certificate. To get my birth certificate from Pennsylvania, I need a valid government-issued ID bearing my current address (driver's license). To change my driver's license to my current address in South Carolina, I need my birth certificate (implemented 6/04 due to Patriot Act).

Has anyone run into this and figured out how to break the loop? I have already called Social Security, SC DMV and PA Vital Records AND talked to supervisors. Is my congressman next?
