    for everyone waiting keep patient you will win your case it took me almost 3 years but i finally got my first check this morning. it should of been automatic deposit but -------- keep on top of the ssa because i called in to them months ago and they still screwed up and mailed me a check.

    i have called them sometimes every few days because they all say something different. today i spoke to a nice young man and he gave me great info on my back pay when on monday the old guy i spoke to was so rude to me and didnt even want to tell me anything. well anyway hang in there all you new ssd applicants YOU WILL WIN--desertbreeze---ps its a beautiful day here in vegas

    Congrats!! I'm sure it was a terrible fight and your story gives me and others hope.

    What a relief for you, I'm sure. Now kick back, relax and celebrate!

    I have yet to make that first phone call. Draggin' feet, it's hard!

    I hope this makes your life easier. Best of all to you!

    hi desertbreeze--
    how long ago did you get your approval letter? I see you had to make alot of phone calls--i just got approv. on friday, so i'm real nervous about waiting as long as you, i have maxed out my debts LONG AGO and can't wait to start getting them paid off!
    my time from 1st file--approval was 2yrs/8months!
    did you call the 800 # or local office?
    its a gorgeous day here in west. PA, too, and i have been looking thru rose colored glasses since the letter came!!!!
    thanks for the encouragement!--L

    yeah for you...you must be soooo relieved. I filed a couple of months ago, I know I have a while;) But it is great to know that with patience it can happen.

    Hugs,

    Congrats desertbreeze, I received my first check today. Feels good doesn't it. I waited 3 1/2 years. got approved March 2007. First monthly check today still waiting on back pay, ss sent back pay on my children 2 weeks ago. What a relief. So happy for both of us. Lisa

    WAY TO GO!!! So happy for both of you....I just filed a couple of months ago so the loonggg wait has just begun for me. I know it will be worth it, but it is so good to hear from people like you......the stress and pain of not only filing but waiting is terrible. Didn't know it could be so hard!!

    Good luck to you both....

    HI THANKS FOR THE EMAIL BACK. WELL AFTER MY HEARING BACK ON JULY 24,2006 THE JUDGE SENT ME TO THE SSD SHRINK. IT WAS AWFUL. I THROUGHT THIS IS BLANKITY BLANK. ANYWAY IT ALL WENT MY WAY AFTER ALL OF THE WAITING. THE DOCTORS APPT. WASNT UNTIL OCT. 6 2006 AND THEN ANOTHER LONG WAIT. IT SEEMED FOR EVER. SO SEE ITS A TERRIBLE PROCESS IN WHICH IM SURE YOU ALL READY KNOW. AND I JUST REC. MY DECISION LETTER ON MARCH 12,2007. AND IM STILL WAITING ON MY BACK PAY BUT I DID RECIEVE A BIG CHECK FROM SSI. SO THE JUDGE REALLY WASNT THAT BAD TO ME AFTER THE LONG LONG WAIT. AND WHAT A BURN ON BINDER AND BINDER THEY ONLY REC. THE LEAST AMOUNT THAT AN ATTORNEY CAN GET, BECAUSE I FIRED THEM AFTER THE HEARING BECAUSE THE ATTORNEY WAS SO LAME. AND THE JUDGE DIDNT LIKE HIM EITHER. WELL GOTTA GO FOR NOW. DIAG. WITH FIBRO AFTER NUMEROUS TEST IN JUNE 2004.

    I'm still waiting for a hearing date, I know my file is at our State SS office and according to my attorney, I'm not on the books anytime soon. I'm filing for MS and FMS, and hope and pray it doesn't take years and years.
