I have been waiting patiantly to hear something about my ssi. I have been waiting since June 2001. Anyhow, I was denied (almost everyone is with this condition) so I appealed it, being denied again. I got a SS lawyer. We went to court on August 24, 2002. I have not heard a word as of today. I don't know if I am denied or approved. Has anyone ever had this happen? Not hearing anything, does that mean anything good? Thanks.
