Hi, I am about to file for SSDI. Most of the stories you read are about the failures. I do know some sucsess stories are out there as well. Some of you recieved this the first time out. I will be broke living on the streets if I am not sucsessful the first time out so am going to try and make the best of it. My doc has said he will right me a letter. I am not sure what to have hime right. I showed him the listing and he told me I have plenty of the listings. From what I read this is not enough though. I am told he has to go on record in this letter stating I cannot do any work period... even sedentary or I will be denied. Would it be wise to submit one of those residual medical function reports as well with this application as well or not?
I am 50 with a 25 year documentation of indiustrial acciidents (1985-2010) to my back. A sugery(microdisectomy/lamectomy) 10 years ago with a partial permanent rating them from workers comp. I injured my self again in 06 and went back to work. I have been off now for a year as I just cannot do it any more. I have seen the doc and he says you have failed bacj surgey syndrome so I am not a surgey candidate and we tried the nerve block shots which did nothing. I have all my med records juts not the letter from the doc.....trying to put together what to ask him to put in it. Any help is appreciated.
