    :)By the grace of GOD,I was re approved for SSDI again. MY reevaluation came up and SS called my home. My husband answered my phone and a lady from there ask him how I was doing and he said not good.actually worse.He told her that he had beed driving me to get chemo. She said ok. They didn't even call my doctor which I can not believe. I know it took me over 2 years at the beginning to first get it. SO I was suprised to be reapproved so fast for now. THANK GOD because I have been so sick. I just THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Rene,

    It is good to know that the system does generally work for those of us who need it eve if it can be understandably difficult to get approved first time round.

    Hugs :grhug:

    Hi Briee,

    Have you tried to appeal the decision? Many people are denied the first time around but do better on the appeal.

    Take care,

    Hi Briee,
    Get a disability attorney. That will be your best bet on getting your appeal approved and processed. At the least, you have the right to a court hearing before a disability judge. You will need a disability attorney for this. There are limitations on how much of your settlement the attorney will get as payment. You do NOT have to come up with any $ at this point. If you are told you are expected to pay up front, then forget that one as it is not a true disability attorney.

    My next suggestion is to review your responses and appeals, and rewrite them, being as verbose as possible and use as many descriptions, in depth, you can. Many of us, myself included, tried to be as specific as we could in those tiny lines allowed. Instead, we needed to fill extra pages and pages, of descriptions of the things that we have to deal with.

    Then, take all this to the attorney and go over every word and how much better you could have explained in detail what you needed to say. Take heart that most people win the court hearing for their disability.

    If you don't know of any attorneys, call the local LFA office and see who they have on record who does disability. That is how I found the attorney I used.
    Good luck!
    Sally
