Hello. So, I was told by my GP that I should qualify for disability benefits, but that it would take yet another specialist to help with my case. Have any of you that applied for disability run into problems? Not sure if I should hire a disability lawyer or wait til I see surgeon? :? I had applied for SSI a couple years ago, but was shot down pretty quickly. Any advice you guys want to give me about applying would be greatly appreciated. One more quick question. Even though I havent seen surgeon yet or hired attorney, should I start the filing process online now or what?
