My wait for SSDI is now over 5 years!!! I have been denied at every stage. Now my case is in Falls Church, VA at the Appeal Committee level. I filed for this in August, 2007. I got in touch with my congressman and they responded that the normal waiting time for appeal is now 30 months!!!!!!!! Can you believe this. In the meantime, while I've waited all these years, I have lost everything. Please say a prayer that I get approved and soon, I am desperate.
