I missed reading all your interesting postings, which has always make feel that Iâ€™m not alone suffering from this terrible disease. Lately Iâ€™m experiencing constant pain, but finally I applied for disability benefit online and I would appreciate everyone input on what is going to happen after that. Does the Social Security Administration will call me for a personal/ phone interview?
Thanks in advance for everyone who might reply

I called SS to apply. They set up a phone interview with me, asked me all the questions I'm assuming were on the online application you did. It took an hour. About a week later I received a packed of information asking me a few more questions and then about a week and a half after that I had money in the bank! Approximately a week after the money came, I finally got a letter stating I was awarded disability.

I applied on line in December 08 and SS called the next day to confirm and tell me I will receive a letter asking for my original birth certificate. It was a five minute phone call.
In March, I received a letter telling me to meet with the State doctor on 4/23, which I did.
I am supposed to hear this month of a decision, but as yet, have not.
I am told that a decision from SSA is generally 5-8 months, but every case is different so it could be sooner.
It is what it is...........
