    Hooray, It took long enough, but those ss are buggers. You put your time in now you should reap the benefits. Congrats!

    If you haven't gotten your first check yet and need money, contact your local SS office. Take in your letter of approval and they can cut you a check for up to but not including $1000. So basically you can get $999.00. It will come out of your back pay but at least it will be some money until your checks start coming.
    My husband won his third appeal in January of this year (without the help of an attorney); we've been the the SSA office twice since then and they have yet to cut him a check - said because we had TWO cars and the second was valued at over $3,000 he didn't qualify to get anything! Can you believe that?!?!? Congratulations on winning your award - I wouldn't count your chicken's before they hatch if you were awarded SSI and not SSD - you won't get anything unless you have nothing.

    Well, gee, that hardly took any time at all, did it?! :hunf: What a shame that people who need it, and deserve it have to stand on their heads to get it, but drug addicts and lowlifes seem to get whatever they want. So glad you have been approved. That will be one less thing to worry about.

    I am very happy that you were approved! It makes me sad that those that need this are strung along for such a long time before being approved.

    I'm very happy for you, you paid in and you should get it when you need it without waiting so long.
