6 months ago I was approved for Social Security Disability Benefits. When I received the award letter which included 9 months back pay, I called my lawyer to say thanks. He asked me if I was happy with the award and when I asked him why, he said he wants to appeal the decision because they awarded me a day that was 11 months later than I put down as my last day of work.
Now I got a letter saying the reviewed my case again and decided I'm not entitled to benefits. My lawyer said he never saw that happen in 35 years. He said he's going to appeal this decision now.
I'm not confident I'm going to win back my benefits and couldn't feel more down in the dumps. the benefit each month was only $1000 but it helped pay the bills. Has anyone ever experienced this reversal? Does anyone have an idea what I should do or focus on this appeal time?
thanks for any information
