i recieved a call from my us reps office yesterday and i was approved for ssd.i originally filed in dec 2007. denied in march 2008. filed for reconsideration and that's where the adventure began. they lost all of my paperwork. i had to reapply in may 2009. with the help of my reps office this has been resolved. the best news is they went back to aug. 2007.even before my original filing date. now just have to wait on paperwork from local office.i feel like a ton of bricks was lifted off me.
