I received a letter this morning that I have been approved for SSDI. I had gotten to the level where I'd have to see an administrative law judge. I'd further been told it would probably be close to another 2 year wait before I saw the judge.
Basically, my attorney kept filing updates on my medical records with the Social Security Disability Department, Administrative Law Judge level. The end result? I'm finally approved. I'll be getting 2 yrs back pay minus what is owed my attorney and my Long Term Disability Company.
I'm thrilled this has finally happened. I'm sad too because I really didn't want to quit work at my last employer. I'd worked there 7 yrs. They were the best Company I'd ever worked for, by far. They treated me well, were fair, great people to work for.
When you are disabled, not much you can do. I'm just happy its over.
