I applied in 2013 and was initially denied (of course), notified of the option to appeal for a hearing and waited for the hearing. 3 weeks before my hearing my lawyer contacted me and said that we can do the hearing but I would loose because of the amount of income I had made for 2014. So I dropped it.
My condition became worse in November of 2014 and I have been off work since then, I accepted STD through work. Now I am filing for LTD through work . I've been on FMLA since November.
My question is do I have to start the process with my lawyer all over again?
There has been a substantial amount of paperwork on medication changes, hospitalization, etc. to provide.
If you want to know about my disability then I don't mind telling. I also will give back were I can. Thanks
