I had heard of people asking their congressmen and/or senators for assistance. I was able to do an on line request to our rep and one of the senators (John McCain's form had some problems so I'll call his office tomorrow). Remarkably easy. In doing the note to them you have to say the reason and "Social Security" is one of the drop down menu items! Not sure if it will help, if I'll hear back, etc. I'll give it a week and if I don't hear back I may call. I just gave my SSDI timeline and that it's pending in the reconsideration stage so can they help expedite approval. We'll see what happens. But SO EASY so think about it if you are waiting.
