    I wanted to share with you that I finally got my retroactive social security disability check in the mail today. I received my award letter around the first of May, I was told it could take up to four months but I got it in just a little over three weeks. There were so many times when I was ready to just give up, I was tired of going back & forth with SSD and the LTD insurance companies. I have to say, that SSD was the easiest to deal with as opposed to the private insurance companies.

    Congratulations. I'm sure it's way too little but isn't it great that you are done with the waiting and wondering?

    Love

    I am so happy for you, not that your sick and in pain but that your financial problems will be less and it is so very stressful trying to get SS. Stress certainly doesn't help ones health. Happy for you Larayne

    I will do the happy dance by way of a smiley for you.

    Mine too has been approved and I am getting a back check. I am so happy. It has been a long road. I might even work less hours at my part time job now. :)
