Approved for SSDI..!!!

I just had my “awards letter” read to me (it goes in the mail tomorrow)
and I will start receiving benefits on January 16th, 2008… This
will be after my 5 months waiting period with payment in the next
month… I filed on June 4, 2007 after being approved for teacher retirement in the spring…
I think what really helped me was when I found out that sending me for
a mental evaluation meant that I was not qualifying with the CIDP…
I then researched to find what kind of information was needed and came
across the functional assessments… While I was waiting for the CE
exam, I located the forms at the website for a law firm (my computer
has crashed since then, so I don’t know the URL…) and wrote to them
explaining what I wanted them for.. They emailed me back sending me
the most recent edition of the form… I took one to my primary care
physician and one to my neurologist in late July and early August…
Then I waited,…and waited,….and waited… You know the drill…
And finally got word today, “for sure”, after some inquiries last
week, that I have been approved… What a relief…!!! 🙂

I too was approved, albeit was two years ago. If people would read what is needed for approval and then see if they can meet that requirement, and then make sure the reports meet the criteria, approval is much easier.
As you have found, it is not only WHAT you had to say, but HOW you presented your information
Again. many congrats !!
