I won my SSDI !!

After a total of three years, 2 years after applying for SSDI, and one year disability from work, I had my hearing last Wed. I was reminded again right before the hearing it would take awhile, be patient the judge will have a lot of questions. Then it will take 4-6 months for a decision.

My hearing was 20 minutes long and the judge issued his ruling right then! I was awarded my disability, going back to 2016 when I had to leave work and Medicare.

I have not had insurance since my husband passed away 2 years ago.

It can happen! You can win! Don’t take no for an answer. Keep appealing. You have nothing to lose.

Congrats!!!!! The hardest part is over...my brother just received his recertification for disability, he didn't even have to go see a doctor, just supplied a ton of paperwork.
