Question Anyone in TN filing for OTR?

I have been in the SSDI process since June 2009. I've been denied at the initial stage, Recon stage and now my attorney is submitting files for an OTR determination.

Has anyone else in TN gone through this? If so what was the timing? The months just drag on and on and this is really wearing on me. My Dr is shocked that I'm not approved. I have Parkinson's disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Rheumatoid Vasculitis and Diabetes and will turn 50 in April if that makes any difference (re: age).

I appreciate any info anyone can provide.

Re: Anyone in TN filing for OTR?

Hi Scribe4762,
I am not in Tn. I am in Ga. I was approved via OTR decision in August 2011. I am also 50 years old like yourself. I initially applied in Jan. 2010 so things progressed a little faster for me than they are for you. Just hang in there. All the wait time can really tear you down and stress you out esp. when you have no other source of income besides savings and money that you might have set aside for retirement while you were working. Luckily, I had LTD going while I was waiting on the long SSDI approval process.

Re: Anyone in TN filing for OTR?

I am sorry it has taken so long to move through the process. your conditions seem serious enough for you to qualify . The waiting is so stressful. Sometimes I really do not understand how a claimant with significant disabilites is not approved easily. I wish you the best, and hope you will come back and update us after your OtR. Decision.
