My LTD insurance company referred me to a great attorney firm in Boston MA (I live in Arizona). The claim for SSDI was filed 8/9/10 with specific notation requesting SS not review my claim for SSI since I have employer provided STD and LTD thus I would not have been without financial resources during my period in which I am applying for SSDI.
Thus far the rep from the attorney firm has been great, very responsive, they have an on-line system where I can check my claim activity whenever I want, etc. I can't see how some go it alone.
I got a classic letter from SS on Friday that basically said
We have not received the requested information from :
If we do not received what was requested from we will not be able to use this information to evaluate this claim.
Yep, blanks, all blanks. So my SS attorney will call the SS claim person and ask what they still need as the letter is full of total blanks. When I talked to the SS attorney rep on Friday she wanted to call the rep at the Arizona Department of Economic Security right away but I had to tell her that Friday was an Arizona state employee furlough day so they were all off without pay that day.
