Re: time line

May I ask if you have any representation ?
I would be asking my lawyer to find out or you could call the office of hearings and appeals in your area to find out something.

Re: time line

yes, we have a lawyer. when i asked them, they said we just have to wait. this is ridiculous. i am really surprised my husband has even made it this long. i think that is what they hope for, death. then they don't have to pay nothing. i'm really getting p'd off.

Re: time line

Have you contacted your local Congressman ?
If not, you can call them and explain everything and they will contact SS in your behalf as they do for many.

Re: time line

yes. i contacted them. they sent the same form letter they send for everyone else, stating they want to know what to be notified of any changes and decisions, etc. it didn't help.

Re: time line

Did you appeal to the Appeals Council?

Re: time line

got the letter today!!! we filed in oct 2005. they said he would be approved starting dec 2006. they said that is when the cirrhosis got bad. they did not approve for his hip replacement. they are giving us 30 days to fight that decision, which i am afraid to fight any more. it would just take longer if we do. i am so tired of fighting these people so we are not fighting any more. just wanted everyone to know.
