FINALLY!!! I found out today i am approved!! I fist was approved for ssi, then today they told me i have also been approved for ssdi so my ssi payments with stop but i still get the back pay for it! And i said i became disabled on feb 17 2010, and they said i became disabled aug 2009.... does that mean more back pay for me?! I'm still so confused about the whole process and medicare and just everything. Waiting for my award letter still. YAY!!!! I waited quite a while for this, but luckily i only had to appeal it once and im approved! STOKED! Laughing Laughing Laughing

Congrats picklih! So did you have anything else going on than what you stated? So, did you have to hire an attorney?

Thanks so much everyone!! Heartburn- I have anxiety/agoraphobia and depression.. Unless my pyschiatrist (sp?) has something different written down that i dont know about. But yeah that's what i have. And no i didn't hire anyone or anything like that. Did it all myself. I stayed on top of all the paperwork and kept every letter and kept all of my appointments and what not! I feel very lucky and a huge weight is lifted off my shoulders now, but not all of it cuz i just want to get all the information so i know exactly what is going on and going to happen!!!

If SS listed your disability onset date in Aug 2009 then yes you'll get back pay till then. Congrats!!

Yes! I would too, would take it to mean that you'll get back-pay from the onset date of August 2009. That is- minus the 5 months of which they with-hold.

You're extremely fortunate to have won your case with just one appeal, no attorney, and w/a mental diagnosis. You must have a 'really' good psych that documented everything the judge needed to approve your case. - Awesome!

Congrats!!!
