SSD called me yesterday and wanted to know if I got a lump sum from W/C yet and I told her no. She then said "You got approved and that is a good thing that happened." I had to ask her to repeat it because I couldnt believe what I heard. Oh My Gosh!! i got approved!!.
If I could do the happy dance I would be strutting my stuff at this very moment. I asked her when do you think I will get my first check and she said after she fills out paperwork and sends out approval letter then I will get back pay from the date of my injury 10-21-2010.
This will be excellant for me when I appear before the W/C judge in July to have him approve a caregiver and a stair chair lift. i am officially disabled. Plus one look at this leg and it will be won. Yippee!
So has anyone else received SSD and how long was it until first check came? Things are really tight in our finances at our house and I was thinking of our budget.
