first time here, disability question
0 Replies
amandanclayton - May 4

hello everyone. This is my first time to your forum. I was diagnosed with Fibro in 2004. I also have Ankylosing Spondylitis and a ruptured disk w/ pinched nerve at L4-L5. I applied for disability in Sept 07. I was turned down, filed an appeal, they reviewed and stood by their decision so I am waiting on a hearing date. The judge has had my file since last April (they say it takes 12-14 months). Hope it happens soon. I have heard that it takes 3 months to get your answer (after your hearing) and then there is a 6 month waiting period before you get your backpay. My quesiton is, how long did most of you have to wait for your hearing? And how long did you have to wait for an answer? Also, any advice for the actual hearing?
