What do u think about my chances?
I filed for ssdi on sep 23. Two days later a case worker called to verify marriage info, jobs held, how I chose disability date, as I have been out of meaningful work much longer. She asked if this was my first time I had applied, and if I had an attorney. Yes and no. Then she sent me forms in the mail about what we talked about and forwarded my case onto the next offc. On the 28th that caseworker in the new office called, and verified doctors seen, jobs, age, etc. The next day I received a form asking for references from a family mem and friend. One form with work,work duties, and the adult fuction report. Returned those.
I have major depression to the point I neglect myself, rarely leave the house. I have an extensive history of medical records, over 15 yrs of reg visits to a psychiatrist, and longer than that with my reg dr. Two hospitalizations for major depression with suicidal ideation. Glaucoma, osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, Meinieres Disease with hearing loss. I do have a college degree. I am 55 yrs old. What are my chances for approval?
