    I'm thinking of moving to mass. My mom lives there and was wondering if anyone knows how hard it would be. The benefits are faster and have a better chance of winning disability also.

    I moved from CA to Mass during my first year of being sick. I first applied for SSDI in CA, but then changed my address to Mass while it was still in the process. I was denied at first, but then approved on reconsideration when I provided more info from my docs.

    My approval was approved within 6 months of initial application. I got the one denial & then filed for reconsideration. I was definitely one of the lucky ones. My docs gave a huge amount of information in their reports & were very supportive. I never had to get a lawyer.

    Good luck with the move, take it easy packing and re-adjusting. I packed a couple of boxes per day, and then we stayed with my mom for a year before we went house-hunting. I was pretty sick & bedridden at the time, so it worked out better for us that way.

    take care,
