I am not completely sure what your attorney was talking about, so I will just tell you what I did: After the judge denied me at my hearing, I started a new claim. I won the second claim at the reconsideration level, while my first claim is still going through the appeals process.
As of today, I am getting monthly SSDI payments, while my first claim is waiting for a Federal Court date.
