Will not open it.

My brother just came home form late shift, put a manila envelope on the kitchnen counter. It is from "them" 1" thick feeling it, it is most likely a decision. this is way to quick, oh it oculd be something else but it is most likely a decision. In any case i am not opening it.

Re: Will not open it.

I have heard the quicker the better. It is supposed to take longer to explain a denial.

Re: Will not open it.

Perhaps wait until morning to open it when we will all be here to support you in either event. It could be a decision, or it could be a request for more information. You will need to open it, and tomorrow morning would be a great time to do it as we will all be available to talk to you about it. Just remember it's going to be ok regardless of which way it goes.

Re: Will not open it.

I agree with everyone. It maybe more things to fill out you need to fill it out and get it back to them and don't give up It is what it is maybe approvalwe will be here for you . But remmber its best to look to see if you need to fill it out don't delay and don't give up. God Bless and good Luck

Re: Will not open it.

I got my denial letter quickly, within two weeks. I would think the quicker the better also, but the judge was very quick to deny me. I'm sure she already had decided to deny me before my case was even heard. I did not get a fair hearing at all. I hope your brother got approved.

Re: Will not open it.

I remember them sending me a packet of additional forms to fill out after I applied. That could be what it is. If so, send it back asap so they can make their decision. If it's a decision...then we're all here to support you whichever way it goes.

Re: Will not open it.

I am here too. I want to support you no matter what the envelope says, or if it is just more forms to fill out. Would be it be easier on you if you called Social security? talked to one of them about it? To hear it is a little easier to see it on paper , in black and white?
Were here for you !

This is probably what it is as PME said. They also sent me the same thing. The packet simply contained additional forms for me to fill out and send back in.

Re: Will not open it.

I hope it is a favorable decision and not just more forms for you to fill out. I have my fingers crossed for you.

Re: Will not open it.

Turns out i was panicking about nothing it is more forms. A function report (which i thought i'd never get) and another questionnaire....SS wants high school records of all things. 1981 here in KY i was a freshman.....don't know how they will get anything from the school since it was so long ago! It is also supposed to be returned within 10 days so i really appreciate your encouragement to open it because i was afraid it was the dreaded denial letter!! Thought it was too early for a decision but the thickness surprised me and ppl have been approved/denied at such an early stage. My brother is giving me major pressure to get a job now which really sucks because it just adds to the stress; but I will fill the thing out the best i can with the help of the firm who is helping me. Thank you again for your support, it means a lot

Re: Will not open it.

I'm glad you looked at it I woud like you said get the firm to help you. And as far as your brother is concerned try to stay on course with filing for ssa because you have already taken many steps in the process already please don't give up. It already tuff enought to find a job out there very competive and you seem to get presured easily so if I were you let this ssa stuff run its course you know your limiation better than anyone else you know what things you can handle and what things you have already proven you can't handle people on this board are very nice and caring some have already been thru the whole filing process so please I know everything about this process is hard but please stick with it . God Bless You. And may you be strong.

Re: Will not open it.

What do they need high school records for? To see if you had any special training in school.

i was in special ed and went to a special school in high school. They may be looking for official confirmation of that (im guessing)

Re: Will not open it.

I am glad you opened it too. Wow all the way back to 1981? that is a long time. Perhaps the records will show that you needed special education services which will prove that your disability had began in childhood. That means you would be eligible for disabilty as a adult child , in which this would come off your parents social security record.
