    Has any one gone through this testing for SSDI? Just wondering, because I have an appointment coming up. Please let me know if you have been through this?

    from what I have read it is pretty routine just be yourself. I am sure you will do fine. If you do a search on this subject you will find a lot of information on it.

    It has been discussed here several times. I am sure others will be along to answers your questions as well.

    There is also a site I have seen referred to several times disabilitysecrets.com it seems to be a very informative site you might want to check it out as well-it could never hurt.

    Best of luck to you,

    Karen :)

    I think many people are confused about the Definition
    of passing and failure on the Psychological Evaluation.
    My evaluation came back in the positive side. In terms
    of acqiring SSA benefits, it was not a plus for my case
    I would think. But I gave and honest interview and didn't
    attempt to give anyone a "snowjob". My problem was Physi-
    cal with some cognitive dysfunction due to fatigue. It
    all worked out in the end and my honest demeanor was a
    positive factor in winning my case.

    Relax, it really isn't a big deal. Almost all have to
    comply with the test.

    Hi, I just had mine yesterday. First of all I can't remember alot that happened- I drove myself with with directions, got lost and was 20 minutes late... Was very upset when I got there- seemed like they were just waiting for me. He asks the reg. type questions and tries to see how your memory is- I think me being late may have blown it not sure-

    I also had to see a doctor and X-Rays. Good luck just be yourself and see if someone can drive you.

    It was not too bad, the guy was nice. He was honest in his report. He was favorable for my SSDI, I was still denied.

    Had to see the judge about 5 mos later then got it.

    hope this helps
