Add me to the "Shaking and Waiting" List

I just got off the phone with SSA and was told that a decision was made on the 25th and that I should receive my notification in the mail any day now. I've been shaking since I got off the phone (which was about 30 minutes ago) and don't see any sign that it's gonna stop.

I keep thinking how great it would be to "beat the odds" and have an approval on my first try ... then reality sets back in.

I've been lurking around here for quite a while and have been glad to hear others' stories. You've definitely helped me be as prepared as possible in case this is just the beginning of the battle.

Thanks,
Amy

Re: Add me to the "Shaking and Waiting" List

you can try call the 800 number they can give you the answer. But you have to be sly about it. Say you dont understand what happens next say you know the decision was made on the 25th and you want to know what happens next. They usually give you the detail. They should eaither say you can appeal or they are figuring your benifits. GOOD LUCK!!!

I called both the 1800 # and local office and got all the info I could once it was approved. Just get all the info you can out of them. Shannon

Re: Add me to the "Shaking and Waiting" List

Well, it appears that my combination of excitement and dread while waiting for an answer to arrive in the mail was all for naught. When the letter didn't arrive today I called SSA back to ask more questions.

While it was true that a decision has been made, it was then sent for review. So I guess I'm looking at another month to 60 days before I hear anything.

Sigh.

Hi Mouses,

Thats a positive note. Ususally the "quality reviews" are mostly done on APPROVALS as I know it. Its just way in which SSA has an internal dept. to make sure folks are doing their jobs....Just more patients on your part!!

Re: Add me to the "Shaking and Waiting" List

I missed a call from my local SSA office this morning. They were calling to get more information to "process my claim." I've called them back but after holding quite a while I was sent to voicemail. I've left a message, and the original message said they would call me back later today. So now I wait.

What has my interest piqued and my hopes up is that I've heard that usually, at this point, if they are asking for "more information to process your claim" then they are really needing more info to start the process of payment.

Also, when I called the toll free SSA number yesterday, the rep seemed surprised that I had not received a call from my local office yet. It makes me think he also saw a status change when he looked up my case.

So, for now, I'm sitting here on pins and needles! I realize I may be getting my hopes up for nothing, but I just can't help it. If I haven't received a call-back by 3pm, I'll definitely place another call.

Crossing my fingers!

Re: Add me to the "Shaking and Waiting" List

I never got a hold of anyone by phone, so I went into the office first thing Friday morning.

I'm approved!

I announced it with a few more details on a new thread:
