    Hello All

    I got the mail today and there is this check made out to me for a very large sum of $$$$$$$ with no explanation as to what it was for , The envelope was from the Dept of Treasury Philadelphia. ( I live in Ca) I made a call to Social Security office and was on hold for 1 1/2 hours before I was helped. The lady was very nice and she said YES YOU WERE APPROVED FOR SOCIAL SECURITY ! ! ! ! ,Then she went on to say I should of gotten a letter before I got the check. I am very happy I applied in April 8, 2008 on my own I made a call to ALLSUP and was told they could not help me due to I was making payment to the IRS on back taxes and if I got approved the IRS could take my back pay. So I applied on my own. Good luck to all who are still waiting.

    The same thing happened to me.I called Social Security and my lawyer.It took me a few days to really believe it.I got my approval letter a month later.

    take a little bit of that money and do something nice for YOURSELF, you deserve it. Even if it's only a few dollars.

    I'm so happy that you were approved. I know exactly how you feel; I just won my case and received letter in mail 9/4 and $$$$$ on 9/9.

    I surely hope the IRS doesn't come in. Someone had told me that no-one could touch your disability pay; but who knows?

    I think I would hold it until you find out for sure.

    Again, congratulations!
