Reconsideration Stage

Received a letter after denial

I was denied my social security benefits two years ago. I received a letter a few days ago that said they was redetermining my eligibility. I called and they said it was an error in determining my eligibility. I'm wondering if there was an error in determining my eligibility and I was denied, do that mean I may be eligible for my disability?

I'm on the reconsideration phase after an initial denial. Usual update, then a quality check, then "medical decision has been made", still processing...but today I received a letter indicating they require me to identify a Payee to handle by SocSec Benefits. Is this a fairly good indication that I have been or will be approved?

SSA-820 net earnings

I'm filling out the SSA-820 self employment activity report. I work occasionally as a writing instructor.

The form asks for dates worked and net earnings. I don't know what my net earnings are. I won't know until I file my taxes. Should I put gross income, then note in the comments section that it's the gross?

I was awarded SSDI and judged disabled by a judge in 2012 for a case opened in 2009 for my heart condition and Multiple Sclerosis. Meanwhile, was separated from abusive spouse but it took 5 years for divorce to be final. However, during the divorce process - and not long after I got my first SSDI checks, I was denied further benefits by local SS office because the spouse inherited large amount of stocks, money, and cashed in his retirement (without my knowledge or any of my portion).
