Hi Dana, I received a call today from the SSA regarding my claim and appeal. The judge ruled in favor and I will be receiving back pay for both disability and SSI. Wow! They did not tell me the amounts yet as they are working out those details. Get ready girl. I’m going to be planning a trip to the east coast after June 15th!

Reduce the chance of a hearing More people are applying for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income than ever before. The increase of applications, combined with the Social Security Administration reducing staff and hours of operation, has caused a severe backlog, thereby increasing time from application to approval as high as three years. Unfortunately, this forces many disabled people into severe financial distress, bankruptcy, or worse. With GAR as your advocate, you are far more likely to win your benefits without the need to go to a hearing.
