:) I received a letter from Social Sec., I was approved for s.s. benefits! I was so excited! Read my mail in Jewel parking lot (Picked up mail on way to store). I bought a few groceries in self check-out. When I got to my car, to put them away, I realized I left them in the store! Tom, hope you've had some good news, I know you've been waiting forever!

Congratulations! That is good news. A couple of questions for you if you don't mind. How often will they review your case for benefits to continue? Did you have to go to a hearing?

My private long term disability was approved yesterday (but with 3 month reviews). The long term disability company is filing for SSD for me through a third party representative. I don't know how it will all come out but it is helpful to know what others have been through.

Again, I'm happy to hear your good news. :)

I remember shopping at the Jewel with my mom growing up outside of Chicago, no Jewel's in NY.:)

It took 5 mos. (Was told it would take 2-3 mos) . I'm also on long term disability from my employer, but that will probably end now. I didn't have a hearing. I was lucky, approved on first application. Had to do tons of paperwork and see one of their docs. I will be reviewed in 3 yrs. Good luck to you both, Lisa and Jen!
