Hello, i am very new to the forums, and i need to know what to expect at a hearing. I have applied for SSD for in 2005 for CTS in both hands, three surgery on my right and 1 on my left hand, and I was denied. I asked for reconsideration and was denied again Now, I have a lawyer and i have been scheduled for hearing. I had neck surgery on March of 2009 multi-level from c-3 -c7, and bone spurs in back/elbows,arthritis. My right foot also is giving me problem. Do i need to list all of my surgery to my lawyer. I need to hear someone who have been thru this hearing. Can you tell me how long would this hearing will be? Do you know the ruling at the hearing? If approval, I haven't gave them no acct numbers? Would I need to take my bank account information? Just give me some feedback on this. Please, I thank you for all of the information so far everybody have shared with me.
