WOOO HOOO I am approved

Hey everyone,
I just got a call from my local ssdi office. Approved. BUT.....they didnt approve my back pay. She said I need to come up there today and file an appeal that I have a good shot at getting that too. Still I am over the moon. It was approved yesterday, the day after the ssdi doc sent in her paperwork. My husband will be so happy when he gets off work today. It took exactlyl 3 months and 29 days.
Anyone ever have to dispute there back pay??
Thanks for all you guys help. I am so happy to have found this site, it kept me from going nuts... or more nuts..??

Re: WOOO HOOO I am approved

Thanks so much ya'll.
Has anyone ever heard of them not wanting to pay the back pay?
I will appeal it because she said it only take 30 days for that answer, but I wonder how much a chance I have on that? I dont understand why they didnt approve that part? Maybe cause I had too much coming to me and didnt want to pay it. Either way, I am so happy I have a head ache.

Damn Chrissy! Way to go girl! We are all cheering for you. What do you think had the most impact on your quick SSDI approval? Which doctor I mean?

Re: WOOO HOOO I am approved

Congratulations! So glad you didn't have to go through a 2-3 year process! Definitely appeal the backpay issue.

Re: WOOO HOOO I am approved

If you appeal, then are you appealing the entire decision (partially favorable)? Just make sure when you appeal, you aren't appealing the entire favorable decision. You've gotten the toughest part of the battle won and hopefully you can now relax.

Yeah ppl do appeal that and Spine and others have said you can still get your monthly check while you are appealing so I would do it. How much backpay are we talking about? How much backpay did they actually award you?

Re: WOOO HOOO I am approved

Lets see, It was to be about 12,000 in back pay. zero is offered but yes, I will get my first check the 2nd Wed of each month starting next month. I have to go to local office to file for the appeal. She acted like the appeal woulnd not effect one thing and that i had a really good shot at getting it...
That said,
I think the most important thing in me getting it so quickly is that ALL my documents said the same thing from the first day back in Nov of 08. I didnt go to the doctor for sinus without screaming about my BACK, NECK. I wanted him to document everything perfectly. But having so many different specialist putting in RFC forms helped. I love all my doctors and have known them for years. For all I know I may have been approved on my heart issue that I have had for 14 years...?? I have not seen any papers yet. Will it tell me the EXACT reason I am disabled? I listed 13 things originally, then ended up being 16 or 17. All, pretty substantial issues too.
It seems as if this is the deal from the converstaion I had with the local office ( she is to call me back here any min): I did 2 work attempts...one for 2 days..and one for 5 months and 5 days. Okay, the 5 months was part time...only it paid more than the 1,000 allowed. So, there you have it. I feel like they should take the 5 months off...then pay for all the years I didnt work. I gave it my all in the 5 months..only working 8 hours a week some weeks. I worked all by myself and was able to lay down alot, but they wanted me to work more and more and I had to quit. So,there you have it. Have you guys ever hear of anyone getting them to pay the back pay once they denied it? She said an actual JUDGE will review the backpay issue and not the same people that approved me.

Re: WOOO HOOO I am approved

Congradulations Chrissy This is such awesome news !!!! When you recieve your approval letter it will tell you why you were approved and there will be a list of reasons. But it will not go into detail. You will find out though.
Not certain why social security is witholding your backpay though? Did you have a Lawyer helping you? Could it be Lawyer fees? BUt you won so quickly that cannot be why. Certainly fight for your backpay, especially that you won SSDI, worked enough credits put money into Social Security. ect. To be denied any back pay is ridiculous. I don't think it has to do with the amount, it might be because you had won so fast. Don't really know. BUT, you have gotten through the hardest part . Be sure to tell them you want direct deposit if not done so already. Your payments will get in the bank a lot sooner then waiting for it to come in the mail.

Smile Re: WOOO HOOO I am approved

Chrissy, I was in a similar boat but my part-time job lasted longer than yours. Because I was "gainfully employed" by their standards, I couldn't go back to the prior 2 years when I didn't work at all. That's most likely what their rationale is.

They are probably saying you were gainfully employed at that time & therefore you can't be considered disabled prior to that. I don't know the rule on how long & how much money can be made in an unsuccessful work attempt so if you are below their limit, just ignore what I wrote above.
