    That is great news. We went through the same ordeal a few years ago. It is terrible that we have to suffer through their ridiculous process. God bless you and your family. Happy times are here again!!!

    I am so glad for you. That process took me almost 3 years. I'm so happy for you both.

    Thanks Nancy. Thanks everyone. After being married almost (next week) 34 years and my husband at his job..with benefits for 27 years. I was really spoiled with the benefits..you get used to that. I'm so stupid, I had no idea that prescriptions prices vary so much. What a rip off!!! I have no idea why I don't remember that stuff with my parents. Just didn't pay attention, I guess. Duh

    I felt your relief 2 years ago. The process took my husband almost 4 years. Courts were backed up 30,000+ cases. Judges from other states were used for the overflow. When he got hurt I was planning my retirement. I had to wait an extra year+ and work as much overtime that I could get. It was a very tough 4 years. Got real burned out. When it finally came through it was hard to feel it was for real. I don't recall a confirmation call. Waited until the 1st check was received and cleared at the bank. He also got a Workman's Comp settlement, which took even longer. --- We are both enjoying our retirement. Now it is time to enjoy his retirement. Hope you have plans to celebrate.

    Congrats! It took me 2 years for my disability. My lawsuit is still "pending" after 4 friggin years! The courts awarded a very nice settlement, BUT, what they don't tell you is the company has right of appeal. Once the appeals run out, the company can ask for ANOTHER hearing which, you guessed it, gives the company MORE appeals! No wonder the court system is so choked up!

    Gee, when I was injured I didn't get to appeal my injuries! I didn't get to appeal all of the surgeries! I didn't to appeal my termination! So, why does the company get to appeal their responsibility?
