A decison has been made on my disability claim

The social security office had made a decision and will be notified by mail. My question is now there is a A behind my social security number , Is this a good sign that I have been approved. Waiting days for the letter is driving me crazy. Anyone else experience this?


  • I was recently approved for Disability through Social Security, and learned that upon being approved, I was automatically enrolled in Medicare. Medicare coverage begins one year from the date your disability coverage begins. I applied in July of 2014, but did not find out I was approved until April 2015. However, they said my disability eligibility date was July 2014, so my Medicare became effective in July 2015 - just a couple of months after my disability was approved.

    How does that relate to your question? Well, my Medicare number is my Social Security number with an 'A' after it. I don't know if that is relevant to your situation or not, but thought I would share it with you. I hope you receive your letter soon, and that your news is good!

    Why the reason is because I can walk, although they agree there are balance issues and issues with my hands since I am able to walk I am still employable

    The medical company I worked for gives you access to all your medical records and test. I have discovered that all my ct scans and mris that all state severe have been removed from my records. I think it is time to lawyer up
  • I will oray at length for you to have a positive outcome,
    After 4 or 5 tries through the years i gave up...
    On the system,not on myself.
    They say the depression isnt bad enough
    The back injurys..are not bad enough
    The limited walking,sitting standing,laying down
    Limitations,arnt bad enough.

    Dont give up
    Dont give in
    Keep fighting...i gave up because the anger and depression had me wanting to walk into traffic.

    I gave up a fight,but didnt give up in the war.
    Neither should you..
