@poorman,
Do you live in a Medicaid expansion state? If so and you qualify, apply for that. Your son may be eligible for CHIP (Children's health insurance program) for your state if you make too much for Medicaid. If you make more than 100% of the poverty limit (which is $15, 730 if it is you and your son on your tax return) you would also qualify for a tax subsidy to help pay for a health plan if you buy through the Marketplace.

This isn't a legitimate path to travel down.

You will likely not be able to qualify unemployment checks as you just quit your job. Most if not all states make that a disqualifying condition in qualifying for unemployment insurance.

wait 6 months

Besides who can wait for six months without pay?!

How are you going to get back into the workforce after being out six months plus however long it takes for the paperwork to go through and you find out that after even an appeal you qualify for only the food stamps, the SSI, and the medicaid?

I find it difficult to believe that those following three sources of income would be enough to live on with a disabled child.

That's a long time to have a blank spot on your resume. Perspective employers are going to balk at that large chunk of time of no employment.

Cliven Bundy's ranch is the place for you, partner. All you need is a cowboy hat, and they will welcome you like a true sovereign brother.
