Do you mean with or without primary's letter of support?
Congratulations! Well done.
Just a note to others who don't have a primary's letter of support or anyone's for that matter.
I didn't not have a letter of support. That is not a requirement for SSDI. You could have a letter of support and SS could still deem you as not disabled. Or, like me, you could not have a letter of support but based on THEIR guidelines, still be considered disabiled.
I just want to encourage those who are too afraid to apply to please apply. Or join disinissues to get help.
Don't let anything stop you. Just keep trying.
What does this all mean? What's a letter of support? Also, what and where is disinissues?
A letter of support is from a doctor or doctors that state that they believe that you are disabled. It could also be a report. Doctors don't normally get paid by insurance for this so they may charge you directly which is reasonable (as long as the charges are reasonable).
So ktn did not have her primary doctor's support through a letter but her specialist wrote a letter.
I had neither but was still approved.

on your approval. My primary hasn't been very involved with my treatment, so its been in my specialists hands.
My Rheumy wrote an unbeliveably good letter for me and I got a bench decision in March.
I am so happy for you!
