Favorable Decision in NC

I was to have my hearing in NC on Monday 11/09. We were on our way to the hearing, when my lawyer called and said that the judge had made a decision and I didn't need to go to the hearing. We had WON... that I had a Favorable Decision. All I could do was cry. I'm so happy. This part is over. The lawyer said that I should get a letter in about 4 to 6 weeks. That is how long it has taken for the last 10 people that has had this judge. I hope it goes that fast.

I just don't understand... the judge had the same information 6 months ago when we were trying to get an OTR decision and we never heard anything.

I want to say Thank you to everyone on this board. I have been reading for the past 2 years. The information has helped a lot.

Everyone that is working on getting SSA, don't give up. Keep fighting. If you don't have a lawyer, Get one. Now. They do help.

Good luck to everyone. I will keep you posted on how long it talkes to get letter and Money....

Congratulations. I went to court on Oct. 22nd. Got my letter 6 days later with the approval. On Nov. 9th I got a check with my backpay. All very fast. Fought almost 3 years and it is all settled in a few weeks. Hope you get everything soon.

Congratulations! You deserve it! I'm sure you're relieved.

Sounds to me like the judge needed to clear his schedule and/or the court for some reason and looked down through the list of cases and approved the ones he thought would be approved anyway. This organization never ceases to amaze me.

Again, congrats!

Regards,

Ex
