Hi Lori,

Hi Lori,

I am sorry to hear that. Sometimes a congressional inquiry can be very beneficial.

What's Congressional

What's Congressional inquiry? How do I find it?

Hi Lori,

Hi Lori,

A congressional inquiry is a status check of your disability claim conducted by your local senator or representative on your behalf.

To request a congressional inquiry, you will need to contact your local senator or representative’s office to request that he or she look into where your disability claim stands.

Hi There,

Hi There,

I am so sorry to hear that. You may want to speak with a Social Security attorney or advocate. You can do so by filing out this evaluation form:https://www.disability-benefits-help.org/form/free-disability-evaluation

I received an approval letter

I received an approval letter at the reconsideration level, that stated my onset as 07/01/2017, but in the Appeals Council's decision, dated 03/07/2017; they stated that "If you file a new claim for disability insurance benefits within 6 months after you receive this letter, we can use 01/20/2016, the date you requested for review, as the date of your new claim. The date you file a claim can make the difference in the amount of benefits we can pay." Can anyone give me some clarity on when my true onset date will be?

Hi Calvin,

Hi Calvin,
Your onset date would be 07/01/2017 according to the letter.

If I was denied ssdi

If I was denied ssdi initially and then in the reconsideration stage I get approve and I entitled to back pay

Hi Lissy,

Hi Lissy,
It's probable that you will, as it usually takes over 10 months to be approved at the reconsideration stage.

Can you qualify for Medicaid

Can you qualify for Medicaid or Medicare in you draw ssdi

Hi There,

Hi There,

SSDI recipients are eligible for Medicare after two years. For Medicaid, there usually is no waiting period. In most cases, once you are approved you should be enrolled in Medicaid.

I have my review. The problem

I have my review. The problem is, I never see doctors or receive treatment. I am autistic.

No one takes Medicaid or Medicare. I can't drive. I live in a town of 2,000 people. I don't even think there are any clinics in town.

Also, I am autistic! I can't go out and talk to people. How do they expect me to seek treatment, when my condition prevents it?

But it basically says, the rule is, they will look at my treatment for the past year, and see if I have improved or not.

There is not even treatment for autism!

Yet I am on a 3 year review schedule. That means they hope my condition improves? How? What will happen? What will I do?

Hi Bob,

Hi Bob,

I would recommend speaking with a doctor if you can. The more medical evidence you have of your condition, the better your chances are of winning your claim.

I was denied in July 2017. I did an reconsideration on my ss claim August 2027 and still no answer. I have Congested Heart Failure and RA.

Hi Jeanette,

Hi Jeanette,

I am sorry to hear that. It can be a very long process. I would recommend being pro-active and regularly check the status of your account.

I turned 65 in August 2017,

I turned 65 in August 2017, filed for Medicare and received an notice for Overpayment for a Disability Claim in 2005. I filed a request for reconsideration in August 2017, and submitted proof that there was no overpayment (1099 from SSA) I wish to retire this September but cannot without a resolution to this claim. I have worked with the local SSA Office and they have tried to contact the Payment Division for an update. I was given 30 days to pay back 19 thousand Dollars, it has been nearly seven months with no response from SSA. How long will it take? Thanks, Larry

Hi Larry,

Hi Larry,

I really can't say for sure because every office is different. I would check back in a month if you haven't heard anything back before then.

Hi Donald,

Hi Donald,

Unfortunately the it is different for every case. If you hired an attorney, they typically find out the decision of your case first. I would contact them and see if they have any updated information.

Hi Denise,

Hi Denise,

That is tough. The more medical evidence (doctor's notes, exam results, bills, etc.) you are able to use to support your claim, the better chance you will have of being approved. Each case is different though. Good luck!

Donald

I was denied then appealed a

I was denied then appealed a week later get form to realease info again does this mean i got approved

Hi Ismael,

Hi Ismael,

The release form will allow the SSA to look at your medical records again for the appeals process. It does not mean that you were approved, but it does mean that the SSA is looking at your appeal and reviewing your information again.
