My wife (CFO) and I (CEO) own a Manufacturing business (INC.) which we will be shutting down soon after 13 years and filing bankruptcy. We will be losing our business, our building and our home. I have not received a pay check for 2 years. We have gone from 30 employees to 13. Long story short my doctors say that I will have no problem getting SSDI. Can I go ahead and file for SSDI now or should I wait until we shut the business down? And if someone buys the business at the last minute, I would be working for them until they could run the business without me. How would this effect my SSDI? And if by some miracle we don't shut down and we are able to keep the doors open how would that effect my SSDI?
