Anyhow the judge stated I would have his decision withing a week I got a little antsy and went to the local office today the clerk there says it shows Pending and for me to wait on my letter. What does the pending mean? The judge said he was entering the decision electronically. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Congrats on the bench approval!
Unfortunately the "wheels of our govt" do not rotate as effectively as we would like.Just sit back and relax,as the months after approval (for some strange reason),seem to be just as stressful as the priors months BEFORE approval
As many members will confirm..........as each phase of the SSDI process moves forward (approval /award letter,back-pay,monthly check,and eventual Medicare) it will move more smoothly afterwards.
