    Lovethesun, I'm so very happy you won your SSD. I haven't worked in 26 years so I'm not eligible for SSD. I don't mind, as hubby makes a good living and we do okay. We are really blessed.

    I don't even have enough credits to get SS when the time comes and I am 67.
    I am 55 now and hubby is 4 years younger than I am.

    I just love it when I hear someone has won their SSD case!

    Many hugs to you,
    Faye

    I think SSA is green with pink. The tax rebate is not. Hope it's the SSA! If it's backpay, that comes to almost $586.67 per month. Does that sound right?

    I celebrate the hope and the joy with you lovethesun, and I love your name!

    Congratulations! Did you file yourself or have someone do it for you? I just began the process. I hired Allsup. I just signed the application today and mailed it back to them for filing. I am 53. Can you tell me your age and diagnosis used? I appreciate it. I'm glad for you.
