View Full Version : Victorious with Social Security Disability
12-16-2003, 12:23 AM
I checked my bank balance this morning & found a direct deposit from Soc Sec. I had not received a letter so I called them & was told they mailed out the approval letter and statement yesterday from Baltimore, MD.
I had to stop working for good in Jan., 2003 & applied in March. I was initially denied & then applied for reconsideration. I submitted everything for the reconsideration; medical records, history of meds, pain meds, treatments, hosp stays, articles, you name it. I indexed it all into an organized file about 2 inches thick. It was very time consumming & stressful, but it appears that it paid off.
For those of you still in the process, hang in there & don't give up.

WAY TO GO!!! Congrats on winning your disability! Sounds like you had everything in order and proved that you deserve this. I think if you take your time and get everything you need to prove your case, it's much easier to get an approval. Hard work always pays off in the end!!!
You Go GIRL:D
I did what you did....I blasted them with every single bit of medical history I had. Plus all the info I could find on IC AND some of the posts from people here on the ICN.
I made it my mission to win, just like you did, and it pays off when you dot all your i's and cross all your t's blink blink
