Another way of putting it is if your approved, the letter states approved and maybe says how much you will be drawing each month and that;s about it - a one pager. If you ae denied, do they give you specifics as to why you were denied. Something that may be useful in your appeal to the next level?

I received an approval letter. Across the top of the letter it stated "Fully Favorable". Then the letter was about 10 pages going into the specifics of WHY I was approved. About a month later an "Award letter" came in the mail explaining my monthly benefits, my backpay amount, and when they would review my case again to see if I was still disabled.
Good luck to you! Be sure to come back and keep us posted!
