    I'm now part of the group who has filed for disability both SSDI and private LTD. My first denial came from the private LTD insurer. I haven't heard from SS yet but rom what I'm reding that'll be a denail too. I've been yelling at my husband for two days now and he's running out of patience with me. I think I might go back to smoking.

    In reading the posts here it appears there are some states where it's easier to get a claim approved. Does anyone know which state those are? What the procedure is to file in a different state.

    Also, does anyone know of a good lawyer who handles PRIVATE disabbility insurance denials? Apparently that requires a different process with ERISA and those lawyers charge 1/3 of ALL recovery. Whew but that's still better then worrying about where any mponey will come from.

    are you from? I am going to try and apply for SSDI in Texas which I hear is the toughest state to get it from. I am with you, I would like to know what the procedure would be for filing in a diffrent state. Hope you get some replies. I am also curious.

    Good Luck

    I live in a half horse town 90 miles north of Tampa Florida. Funny you say Texas is the worst. I've heard the same about Florida.
