Sweet/Nan:

 

Just got a check from "SDC" for a great deal of money, but no explanation. Does that mean I got the permanent disability?

Oh Tru, YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

Yes!!!! Good for you!!! I'm so happy for you, isn't it a relief???? That is how it was for me too. I ended up with a HUGE AND I MEAN HUGE deposit from them as it was retroactive for a year and a half. I do my banking online, so I saw this outrageous balance and thought it was a mistake, so I called the bank and they said "A very large depost was made by the Social Security Department". I didn't get a letter from SS for almost 3 weeks saying I was actually awarded. So you got it!!

 

 

 

Party, party party!


Warm and gentle hugs,

Remembering how your appointment went, I'm so glad that things worked out in your favor. I'll bring some Florida cuisine to the festivities!

I truly wish the "party" was real and I could physically meet each and every one of you. All of you have been a life line to me and I can't express just how much you have all mean to me.

I'm so happy for you, I remembered how upset you were about the SSDI doctor visit. Now you deserve to enjoy some of that money. I think people whith this terrible disease should not have to go trough so much struggle trying to approve to SSDI their disbilities. But that if we were living in perfect world.

 

 

Best wishes

Congrats Tru.......you definitely deserve it. Having worked for the postal service for 22 years, I remember what it was like to try to retire on a disability. It took my doctor a few days to fill out his share of the paperwork saying I needed to retire. It took the post office over 6 months to agree. Typical. Wonder how the bureacrats would feel if it was a member of their family or even them? Bet that process would speed up.

 

Being a Texan, I make a monster salsa......any heat index you want. Just let me know when and where that party is.

Great news Tru!

 

It makes me know there's help and hope. I am a little hesitant to apply, but I think I will have to as even part time teaching is a lot for me--spoon wise. My poor hubby is pulling out his hair trying to pay the millions of bills and we are in trouble. A check a month from SSI would help. Thanks for your persistance and keeping us posted.

Karen:

 

Couldn't hurt to apply now because it could take 6-8 months for a decision. In addition, the forms could be filled on line. The forms are so tedious and long, SSD gives you a password so that you can go in and out of the form at your leisure. A lot of items are time sensitive information, which the password would allow you to go in and enter when you remember or come across that information. All in all, nothing is sent until you hit that submit button, so nothing lost, nothing gained.

Got the big check last week, today mail regarding on line passwords and still no approval letter. I called and was told approval went out 6/22 so hopefully it will be by tomorrow or Thursday. Need to forward this letter to others.
