Only a couple of weeks, Jules! Great!
Along with our attorney, I accompanied my husband when he went before a judge to appeal the rejection from SSD. The judge looked over all the paperwork, medical reports, etc, asked a couple of questions, and said the claim was approved. We were in and out in less than a half an hour.
I'm sure every case is different, and every judge is different, but the case was well documented and our attorney was excellent. It didn't take long before the first check arrived, and (a biggie for us) the Medicare card.
Hopefully your struggles with SSDI are near an end.
