After almost three years of doctor’s appointments, appeal after appeal, my sweet wife having to work to support us both and generally living like nomads, today I received official notification that the administrative law judge who heard my disability case rendered a decision which is called “fully favorable”.
He’s dated my disability back to March 13th, 2009 and I’ll be getting some retroactive pay back to then minus 5 months that SSDI keeps.
I now have to go to my local SS office and fill out paperwork at which time I’ll be told what my monthly allotment will be.
The lawyers will of course get 25% of the retrocative pay, but after that everything will be ours.
Y’all have been so good to me, and I don’t know how I’d have made it through if you hadn’t been here for me. It is always such a comfort to be able to sit here and interact with you, and D and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all that you did and are doing as our friends.
I am so happy also that I can once again “pay forward” all that has been done for me/us.
