Has anyone won because of grid rules?

I was wondering how many people win because they fell in the grid rules? Did that speed up the process of getting your award letter and benefits?

hi there,

hi there,
grid rules may not expedite a decision on benefits, they determine fitness for work, re-training and career longevity.

If I get approved it will be

If I get approved it will be because of the grid rules. The VE said there were no jobs except sedentary which pushes me into the grid rules. When I left my hearing they were discussing my onset date because when I applied I was 49, but then a year later I turned 50 and I think that is when the judge will set my onset date. I'm with Bryan, I don't think it will expedite the decision but I guess I will see.

Hi Lisa,

Hi Lisa,
That is correct, it may not change the speed of the decision, it is only an assessment tool that the SSA uses.

Hi there,

Hi there,
You may want to contact a disability advocate or attorney, they would be able to help you through the process and can fight for you if you need to appeal the SSA's decision.
