Hi cardinal tu i beleive we exchanged posts before and I appreciate that.
I started my process last year around this time dec.
Was denied in march put in for reconsideration and turned down in july got lawyer and got a hearing date in late august for nov and got letter today.
I feel very fortunate my process didnt take as long as i had expected.
I belkeive this in part to my lawyer and possible the state I live in.
I here stories about lawyers who delay on purpose to get more pay not true with mine for she did inform me at first interview that buy hiring her I would get in faster.It seemed she knew everybody at the hearing office for she had been doing this for 9 years.
Some people dont like to hire lawyers for they try to get all money forself and thats ok
But their is free help out there we have a program here called DEAP now I dont know if there in every state,Also ckeck into leagl aid.
No its not to late for lawyer I dont think especially if you dont have date I would
call social security and ask.
Not to sound like broken record but hiring a lawyer is best in my opinion.
For the first two denial letters i got telling me I wasnt disabled ect ect.
They never even sent me to a doctor.
Now this decision letter I got to day says a whole different tune.
Stating in letter that it is postively clear I have impairments listed under 1.02 in impairment section.
I owe all this to my laywer I beleive and my doctor for helping win this case
I now do beleive social security does discriminate and denies people to discourage them.
Sorry so long I can go on and on
